factory bimini

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, we have our factory bimini that came with our boat up for sale. It's still in the factory plastic and I really don't want to open it up to take a look at how it works. I have had a couple questions as to will it work with this or that boat. My question is, does the bimini you order from the factory have adjustments so that it fits several boats? Or is it specific to the boat it was ordered with? Does anyone know? Dontknow.gif

I know it has to do with the width. I just got a Bimini for a guy who has a V-Ride, and they sent him one for a VLX, which was too wide. He was sent the correct one for his, and they never asked for the mis-shipped one back.

I am sure that some models are interchangeable, but not all.

Assuming you are not talking about a tower mounted bimini, it's primarily about the width at the mounting points. There is some flexibility in the bows for the top that allow you to fit it to a range of widths, but probably not more than +/- 3 inches from the at-rest width of the bows.

I picked up a new (still in factory wrap) malibu bimini for my 06 vride. It says on the paperwork 05 06 Malibu, nothing about VLX or vride. I haven't installed it yet because it looks to be too wide. I'll have to talk to my dealer. How much difference is there betweeen VLX 05-present Illusion X tower width to that of the Vride 05-present (04-prior VLX)?

Not sure of how far off they are, but that is exactly the issue the guy I got mine from had. The V-Ride (2004-prior VLX) was narrower, so the tower must be narrower as well. The VLX bimini was too wide for his tower.

Anyone have the hull width difference for pre '05 vs 05 and later?
