Towerbiminis extended bimini on a VTX advice/pics


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have an x-large Bimini on a VTX. If so can you post or send me a picture.

If not a picture does anyone have experience with one, as I my wife feels the standard bimini doesn't look like it provides enough shade. It is not really because it is too hot, but more because it keeps the sun off the kids.

Thanks in advance for any input.

IMHO, the VTX is too short for the extended top. Not only does it cause serious problems getting in and out of the boat from the back (you have to be careful not to hit your head and end up doing weird limbo thing), it also covers the ENTIRE cockpit. With the standard bimini there are 3 or 4 seats in the shade in addition to the driver, so anyone that wants to be out of the sun can be.

I'm a big fan of the extended TowerBimini's top on the 23 and even VLX, but on the VTX it just seems too big.

I would not want the extended top. We have the std. Tower Bimini and it's just right.


You pictures were the ones I had my wife look at. The top came out great. I think I have her convinced that the std. size is the best for us. bleegeorge, I would still love to see the pictures when you get them, and congrats.

Thanks everyone for the input.
