Default Bimini Cover Rebuild

I have a 1997 2100SR that I have to completely rebuild the bimini cover. What I am needing is the specifications or if there are any how-to's on this project. The only remaining thing I have is the vinyl. If someone can point me in the right direction on this project!!

I am borrowing the photo from 9Ball on his links from his 1994 2000SC Refurbishment thread.

Not sure what the picture has to do with a bimini cover. Do you have the metal frame work for the bimini? I suggest you find a good local canvas person.

Yes........ go directly to your favorite canvas shop...do not pass go...... do not go anywhere else....and only after you have talked to the canvas shop owner then do you report back to us with pictures of the end result........savvy?

Leta's Top Shop (google) probably has the original Maxum pattern for that bimini. Give them a call, will probably be less expensive than a local shop.

I guess I gave a confusing description but its not the bimini its self. It is the cover of the storage for the bimini cover that fits over the transom and forms part of the sunlounge. Forgive me if that's still confusing

Find a boat upholstery shop near you, they can handle the job from the vinyl to any new wood required.

Roger, what he is refering to is an area that run abouts have for storing the bimini. It is a short pad ( 1 foot wide) at the back of the boat. You remove the bimini (fram and all) lift the pad and the bimini goes in stradling the transom of the engine. Not all run abouts have this but several do.

So is the only option to take it to an upholstery shop or are there dimensions somewhere that I can use as my current one is rotted beyond recognition.
