Towerbiminis Extended Bimini

Recommended Posts

jtrovato

I just ordered an extended bimini from towerbiminis.com for my 07 vRide and was wondering if anyone here has one and has pics of it? It's supposed to be easier to use than the Metcraft extension that you just add on to the standard bimini. I've looked through pretty much every bimini topic I could find but only found pictures of the Metcraft extended one.

Looking forward to getting it on so I can take my 1 year old son out there this summer and not have to worry about him getting too much sun!

Don't think I've come across it myself. I do have the Metcraft version and it does provide more shade but at the same time oyu need to dock to get back up front countless people run into it and of course the toower spool is harder to reach. But overall nothing that would prevent me from ordering it again for kid protection.

Sometime you should call John @ Tower Bimini's and bring by the boat put up the Bimini he will mark the spot un hook the top install zipper and pay him 40-50 bucks...and Wala easy fix.. John is a good guy :thumbup:

The towerbiminis extended bimini comes with a zipper already on it to make it easier to access the tower spool, so no worries about that.

Malibudude, what did you mean by you have to dock it to get back up front? And do you mean because it's lower in the back, people run into it?
