Anyone have suggestions on a place for a Bimini tops? Going to add one to my 87 Dominique and was looking for some direction from those who have had good luck with purchases.
Thanks,
Brian

I bought Carver Bimini from Overtons 10 years ago. Sunbrella fabric, highly recommended.

Be forewarned stainless tubing tops are very heavy. I have one on my Florida boat,granted it's larger than a ski boat top but you have to lift it by the straps,too hard to dead lift hanging over the windshield

They’re heavier but they don’t need straps. Maybe it’s time for some upper body training?

Now that Gary is retired, I'm sure he could use some training. Even when he was working, I have a feeling he never had to get those spurs on ether. Too many years in the bucket.

Until this Chinese Virus showed up I'd be willing to bet I spent more time at the gym than you two put together. Peter what top does not need straps?

You are officially IronGary! Great to hear your beefing up! Never hurts to put time into your health like that. I do a lot of indoor cycling and bought a Bowflex. Gym with frequent flier miles when Covid hit. Two weeks after I redeemed those miles they tripled the cost in miles for the gym. Whew.

The Biminis on many newer ski boats including my off-brand inferior version has six stainless steel quick connects and. No straps. I’ll send you a pic on your cell as it’s on my phone and not easy to post.

Ran great until I botched the impeller replacement! All good now that all the pieces were rodded out of the trans cooler. Sheesh. Oh and did I mention my lift chain broke the first raise of the season with the boat 1/2 way up? Yeah. Life is great!
