What Bimini is this?

Recommended Posts

SpaceSurfer

I got a new to me Malibu LSV 23 and I can't for the life of me find out what bimini this is.

I've tried messing with it a few times but I need the instructions on how to properly operate it. It already went haywire yesterday when driving since I guess it's not supposed to go faster than ~22mph and it kinda came apart. I then tried my best to put it away, and it unraveled at 30mph....

Come on guys! I wanna go fast!!!! :D

Most biminis can do 40+

Possibly a Great Lakes bimini or Commercial Sewing bimini.

The front definitely looks to low and angled down way too much.

Frame looks bent or broken to me.

Too low! So it’s not supposed to be down like a visor! Yes that’s what I was told...I’ll angle it up more and see how it holds up today

Check the clamps that hold the forward facing arms in place, should be a set screw that locks it onto the forward tube of the tower. If that tube clamp is loose, the thing will not stay in place at basically any speed.

Here's another pic to where you might can see the front easier.

Can you link me to any YouTube videos on folding it up? With the front arms clamped to the tower, don’t see how it could be stowed...

The two pieces that clip in do not stow with the bimini, I just keep them in my glove box.  The back half will flip forward, then place the front hoop with the rest, bunch up the canvas and zip it all up into the storage sleeve.  The sleeve should have two tie straps so that you can secure the bimini to the tower.
