Cool

I own 3 Donzi's...

I happen to like tasteful bimini tops, on some applications...

besides, they are much cheaper than skin cancer treatment..

don't ask how I know this firsthand....

Jim, I didn't see one mounted on that beautiful Criterion though did I?

That's what I was searching for in this picture.

Those two weekends were when I kept it out in Havasu for 91 days for out of state delivery. Back in CA, only twice have I had it on. Once for Jeffrey, and once when we stayed the weekend in Catalina.

waterheater......the red is still very red and not faded. Not sure what the fabric is. Did you note that there are NO straps? All 1 inch SS.

Cuda...you crack me up!

What kind of top speed are you going to be looking at? 1" in my opinion is a little overkill, but some feel different
Mine is 1" and at 100 it does fine..even with the complete enclosure up

Nort,

Did your Bimini come with the boat when you bought it, or did you purchase it aftermarket?

I personally hate Bimini's but after recently having surgery to have some skin cancer removed I have no choice but to buy one.

Didn't notice that it is 1" SS.......but since you mentioned it.........must weight a heck of alot more than straps.

Chris....DSM had it made for me. Part of the purchase. Tim Hogan might know.

Enticer, it can't weight that much more than if they used straps. Four extras pieces of SS can't weigh that much can it? They called it the 100mph bimini.....which means that with it up, I shouldn't go full speed.

Nort.....you are correct.I had mine custom made in FL and all they think about is high winds and hurricanes
But from mine being 1" as opposed to the 3/4" my other boats had..the 1" is much heavier (in weight)
