anyone know any tutorials on putting up and folding  down the bimini? I was able to get it but just seemed like too much trouble and there is probably an easier way.

Which tower and which Bimini? If it is a flip Bimini it is pretty much just opening up the Bimini (taking off the cover and unwrapping it) , locking in the two supports then securing the Velcro tabs around the frame. You might have the new tilt mounts which are there to allow you to lay the Bimini down lower when the tower is down (for a garage/bridge.)

Yep, mine takes 60 seconds. Unboot, flip down and lock in supports, done.

Has anyone had any luck the the GX tower and stowing the bimini in a better spot? It looks so weird sitting above the GX when stowed.

It should look like this which is the same as it looks on a G3. Are you pulling the pins on the mounts and rotating the front up?... that is only to pivot it when the tower is lowered (to get the Bimini to lay on the tower without sticking up.)

I was hoping it could go nicely against the tower not below it or above it (I dont have delivery of mine yet) The below and above looks odd to me. My g3.2 I could put the bimini up and secure it to the rear hoop of the tower and it looked alot more normal

Maybe post up a photo of your old boat. Did you have the new sliding Bimini in your G3.2? I can’t think of any way my 3.2 Bimini could be attached to the rear tow hoop. I ask because my Gx and my G3.2 biminis are nearly identical in how they mount, store, tilt, sit on the tower, etc. So I am curious as to what you had in your old boat as it doesn’t sound like the factory sliding Bimini.

I have the G 3.5 tower.  there is a rotational mechanism on each side with two pins in the lower half. each release pin controls the front and back bars. it seems like the the front half and back half of the bimini zippers the front and back of each bar and velcro onto the side frames. but it seems awkward trying to fold it up or down while zippered to the frames.  also it seems it will only fold down (closed) to the rear. is this correct?
