Default what Bimini to buy?

Hello All,

So Im wondering where to buy the a good bimini top.
- I-boat sells what looks to be the best online option...

Westland 36 Series Bimini Top - 3 Bow Frame for Maxum 1750 NB (1993-1998) - (73" - 78" W x 36" H x 6' L) - iboats.com

my boat is a 1750 NB model, 1998

I plan on using this boat for about 2 or 3 seasons. Should I go custom? I don't mind paying extra but it seems to take forever....

any other options?

firkin hot up here in BC!!

Cheers everyone,

-Andrew

Custom. I wouldn't buy one off the shelf. I witnessed an off the shelf bimini in action this week and was not impressed.

I agree, have one made by a local canvas shop. You can control the specs better.

I'm 6'5" tall and when I bought my current boat I could not stand up at the helm due to the bimini being too low. I had 2 custom made that were 2" taller than me at the helm.
