2015 23LSV with GL Bimini - question about folding

Recommended Posts

randv

I have the GL Bimini with the surf pockets, and was wondering if I am missing something. When fully deployed and in use, it works well, but I am wondering if I am not 'storing' it correctly, as if we just fold it up, but not put it in the zipped cover, the back of it will just fly open (and not in a god way) when we go over about 15 mph.

I assume I must be doing something wrong, as it seems strange that they can't be folded up and secured properly. However I have looked and there doesn't seem to be any straps / belts to tighten it down. We have a zipped cover, so am I supposed to put that back on every time I want it secured?

Not a big problem as we use the bimini for board storage, an with young kids we want the shade, but there will be times when I want it folded away and go above 15mph.

Any one else with one? What am I doing wrong?

It needs to be in the zipped cover when stowed.

I also added three straps to secure it before you put cover on. This will allow you to keep it folded without the cover if you want to take it up and down throughout the day. It also will help make it easier to put the zipper cover back on. Plus I added two other straps to front crossbar to help secure while towing once stowed in cover.

Pretty sure all biminis have to be secured in the zipped cover if underway.
