Default Convertible Top/Bimini Hardware

Hello All -

I have a 2001 Maxum 1800XR. It came with a sunbrella top that I think is called a convertible top as it uses the front half of the summer cover and snaps to the front of the windshield. It sits lower so you can't stand under it. Anyway, my daughter dropped one of the support bars into the lake. So I am trying to build a new one as I was unable to locate one already manufactured. Can someone please tell me what this white nylon piece is called? It goes over the metal frame that goes above/ around the windshield but it specifically attaches towards the back where the metal frame tapers down into the body of the boat. A quick release pin goes through this and through the metal frame and holds the convertible top frame in place. Any help is greatly appreciated as I have not been able to find this piece anywhere online. Thank You

Yes, itís called a Bimini canvas hinge. The part number is 1705898.

You can order them from silver spring marine in RI. https://www.silverspringmarine.com/.

I sent them an email inquiry for that PN through their website and they were able to order them for me.

Thank you for the link. Unfortunately it does take me to the specific product I was looking for. I did look at the Bimini hardware link and didn't see this specific piece.

Those pieces are not rare and available from many marine supply and canvas stores. I have even found them at West Marine. Amazon and eBay also have them listed. Look around you will find them.

You will find the piece that will do the job, though maybe not that EXACT piece, which is kind of a cheap part.

Default Yes! I found it. or rather you did!

Thank you to the 2 people who led me to finding the nylon bimini connector. I just ordered it and an extra set too. You have made me a happy woman after going without it for months.

It didn't need to be nylon. The SS work just fine. The nylon degrade in UV over time and are junk. The only difference is the ss slide over the pipe and have a better overall hold.
