Tubing is 7/8 in diameter, brite-dipped anodized heavy wall aluminum. Double-walled main bow for added strength. The anodizing process treats the surface of the tubing to protect from oxidation and provide protection from the harsh marine environment. Aluminum is the chosen material for the frames as it has a high strength to weight ratio. Frame is designed as "knock-down" frame- meaning that the frame is made up of sections that snap together via double-sided snap buttons. All of our Tops come with Black nylon mounting hardware.

SELECTING A BIMINI TOP FOR YOUR BOAT. There are 4 import factors to consider.
Determine what portion of your boat you want the top to cover. Mounting point will be the mid-point of your Bimini top's length. Keep in mind that the mounting point you choose will impact the size of frame you need, the shade it will provide and which part of the boat will get shade.
WIDTH : The width of the frame depends on mounting point. Mounting Points will be the mid point of your Bimini top's length.
Simply measure the widths between the points where you will be attaching Bimini top to the boat, measure across your boat from gunnel to gunnel (side to side). This is not the same as'beam width' or boat width. Widths of the Bimini Tops are specified in increments of approximately 6; since the aluminum frame has a degree of flexibility.
Choose the width that most closely matches to your mounting point measurement. LENGTH: The length of the top will determine how much coverage the top will provide. If you have an existing Bimini top on the boat which you want to replace open the frame and measure the length on top of it. HEIGHT: Determine the primary use of the Bimini to select the proper height of the frame.30"-36" frame is Low Profile. 46 frame is advised Universal use. 54 frame is for Walk-Thru / Standup purposes. Measure height straight from mounting point up while standing inside the boat to get a feel for how much room you will have once the Bimini is installed.
Remember, you will have less shade as you go up in height. WE OFFER A WIDE VARIETY OF BIMINI TOP FRAME AND FABRIC OPTIONS. BOWS: Bimini tops come in 2, 3 and 4 bow styles.This refers to the number of bows that make up the frame. The bows of the Bimini are the parts of the frame that go from side to side over the width of the boat. 2 Bow Round Tube Bimini tops are the smallest and are for shorter Fishing boats, and Inflatables.
We offer 2 bow Bimini tops in a height of 42" with a canvas 5'6" long. 3 Bow Round Tube Bimini tops are the most common Bimini ordered. Recommended for V-hull runabouts, ski boats, performance boats, and most center consoles.

Can my Bimini top lay down flat and where will it land on my boat? When your Bimini is not in use, you can lay it down in either direction. Bimini top laid down will be approximately an addition of 20"-25" to the height of the bimini frame. This is because of the way that the metal bows nestle together. We offer optional Slide Assemblies to allow the bimini to be re-positioned (when folded down) either forward or to the stern from its normal mounting point when in use.
How fast can I go when your Bimini top is deployed? Our Bimini tops can be used going at speeds of up to 35 MPH. If you would like to go faster with your top up, we recommend thru-bolting (Thru-bolting your top will allow you to go at speeds of up to 45 MPH with the top up), using stainless steel fittings and longer bolts. Do NOT trailer your boat with the Top up! This is an aftermarket product.
