Is this the CS Bemini?

I was not aware of the difference between GL and CS bemini and I just noticed on my build sheet I have the CS style. Not as good I’m reading

Looks like the GL bimini. The CS bimini has it’s annoying quirks but you’ll figure out fairly quickly how to work it.

The biggest complaint is locking in the support arms. When you’re locking in the support arm, pull down on the back of the bimini and give the arm a shove/bump so it goes in far enough to let the twist lock turn freely. Then you can just spin it from beneath, without using the D ring that’s hard to access.

People have looped zip ties on the d ring too. I went with the CS and I’m perfectly happy with it. I keep our bimini up 90% of the time though. If I stowed every time I’d definitely look at the GL harder.

Zephyr blue, vapor blue, and graphite.  Zephyr is the dark blue

I go with the GL Bimini, well worth the upgrade IMO

Where are all the new boats?!  It's getting cold and I need to see them to make me feel warmer, haha.

Don't we usually have like a dozen deliveries by now most years?  Are all you annual upgraders slowing down or is the factory just not up to your build slot yet?

I got a leftover 19, but didn’t want to post here since it seems it would be in the wrong place

I doubt I wouldn’t get the cameras again, but that was a resale block that was checked. What I don’t know is how I managed to live so long without the Fender Pros. Those things with my BABz have been worth their weight in gold for floating and at the dock!

@IXFE  Looks like a pretty loaded build.  Why not go 5 outlet heater?  And no wakeview seating?   Are the rear flip down seats available in 2020?

It’s been so long since I ordered a heater that I didn’t realize they had a 5-outlet!  Is that what you have?  

Good catch on the wakeview bench. We’re skipping it this year. We hardly ever use it and I don’t like the big gaps it leaves between the seat cushions. 

Yes flip down is available this year. I’m not a fan. Don’t really understand what problem they solve.

No worries.  Once I saw Gx, I figured most option boxes would get checked.  And yes, we have a 5 outlet heater.  I just figure once you check the heater box, it isn’t much to get 5 vs 3. And with the capacity of the 25, we use all 5 tubes at times.

IXFE, do they have a better solution on the 25 if you don't get the wake view seat? If you remember from my thread the non-wake view seat design on the 23 is... well... looks and feels like something Bayliner would have designed :-/.  The ends of the center cushion are not supported (at all) and the ends start to sag after only a few hours of use.  I think they just need to use a stronger base material with less flex and then just add a little support block for the ends to rest on.  Still working on a solution for mine but if I had to do it over again I would check the wakeview seat box just to have a decently constructed seat that didn't sag (but I do see what you mean by the large gap on the 25.)

Honestly, neither option is ideal. I’ve had the rear facing bench in my last three boats. At the end of the day it comes down to the fact that we just don’t use it. And it’s $3k option so.... 

You may recall that @TallRedRider reported no sagging in his cushion.

@IXFE other than @hethj7’s suggest for the 5 outlet heater I don’t think you could build a much better boat!

@IXFE is the Deck Trac, that sand paper stuff or the soft grip Gator Step-like stuff?  If the sand paper, what was the logic on that over the soft grip?
