Default Looking to buy one of these

Does anyone know where I can get one of these tops at? They
work really well and are very compact.
Thanks

I bought mine at West Marine a few seasons ago. They are called Anchor Shade, and are around $200

Do a search on Anchor Shade, this has been brought up a few times, including their importing/licensing problems. They are nice, but not study. A strong wing will bend them over, as will any traveling over no wake speed. They work great at a picnic site too.

There is another one that is just like it, but made of heavier material and about $100 less, I bought one last year. I'll see if I can find where I got it. Bought it over the net. It sure is better than a butt ugly bimini!

After my last Anchor Shade met it's demise due to 15 mph winds I found this shade: Bimini Shade
And bought one. They are cheaper, better made and have a really nice suction cup base that keeps them in place. The material they are made of is like Sunbrella, not thin nylon like the Anchor Shade. They also come with more straps I recommend them highly.

Yup, that's the one I have. Much better quality than the Anchor Shade, my buddy had one and it lasted about three trips before it started coming apart.
