Default Two questions: Bimini canvas and ACCY switches (2300/2400 SC)

Hi, everyone. Finally got to take my new craft on a decent tour. I'm really impressed with the ride and handling. I've outfitted the boat with Piranha composite props if anyone is interested on a review.

I have a couple of issues I need help with. I have three full canvas options with my boat: mooring, full camper and half camper (I think those are the style names) but I want a bimini. Ive asked for a couple of quotes via email and received estimates around the $2300 mark! I thought this was outrageous considering I can have one shipped via iBoats for under $1000. My question is, does the existing tube hardware also support the bimini tops or does one have to completely removed the camper top if they want to use the bimini top. Has anyone purchased a generic bimini from iBoats?

Secondly, all the ACCY toggles switches on my dash. I know the function of only one: wiper. I cannot figure what the others do but they do light up when switched. BTW, pump and lighting are separate switches. I am referring to the 4 ACCY toggles.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Majbach,

I'm not clear on the Bimini part of the question. You say you have 3 canvas options. Does this mean you currently these three types of canvas tops, or that you're looking at choosing between them? The 'Mooring Cover' would simply be a cover that snaps across the top fo the windshield and across the tops of the gunnels and covers the cockpit only. The Full and Half Camper tops both use a Bimini and include drop curtains for the sides, usually isinglass. The Half Camper drops directly behind the bimini and leaves the back portion of the cockpit.

As far as ACCY switches, most of them are there for the ability to add on devices and more than likely are not connected to anything.

Thanks for the reply, Shrew. I have the canvas 'options' already and am looking for a bimini; one that is clear of the windshield. Speaking with some guys on iBoats that have dad success, I am going to order from there

Ah, so your current canvas comes down to the windshield?
