Default Where to find one of those umbrella type biminis when rafted up

Would like to get one of those umbrella type biminis for sun escape when parked or rafting up - Anyone know where or recommendations. Thanks. Ted.

I got my Anchor Shade at West Marine, I think it was about $140 or so, don't remember the exact price.

If anyone finds or has a Purple one, please let me know. They don't make them anymore, and I'd like one. I already have a white one.

A much heavier duty rig than anchor shade, and less money.

I had a Lost Bwana; and I gave it to a friend with a 7' beam boat. It is heavier duty; BUT because its heavier, it does not open as wide as the Anchorshade; even though they claim to have the same size square material. The Lost Bwana has more of a tent shape, and did not cover as much of the cockpit as I liked.

There are two generations of Anchorshades. The first ones were a bit flimsy.

The second ones have vents in the actual shade material to alleviate wind gust lifts; and the supports are built a bit stronger.

That's what I was thinking. Just go by your local West Marine.
