Background of the Bimini Top
Just a little info about bimini tops for those that do not know what they are. These boat tops first appeared at Bimini Bay - Bimini is part of the Bahamas, closest to the mainland of the USA, about 53 miles/81 kilometres east of Miami and is a very popular holiday and fishing resort, also known as the Fishing Capital of the Bahamas.
Their popularity soon spread worldwide for not only protection from the sun, but also a practical way to shelter from the rain in cold climates. There are used by fishermen, boating enthusiasts, water skiers, duck hunters and pleasure craft in the tourism industry all around the globe.
They are a very practical device, in that they can be made very lightweight, but strong, and have the ability to fold-up for traveling and storage. There have been some mishaps where the bimini has not been closed while being towed on the freeway at high speeds and the wind has ripped them off the boat.
Some are enclosed at the front and sides which makes them much less prone to wind resistance.
Generally, there are three frames on a standard size top, though four is now more common as boaters find more uses for them and require something a little bigger. The frames are usually made of aluminium, although the more expensive ones can be made of 316 stainless steel (marine grade).
Once you have determined where you want to fit the top to your boat, you measure what size you will require. Using a calculator that we supply, you insert your basic sizes and you are provided with the cut length sizes for all 3 bows.
After these are all cut, the supplied measurements for the bending points are marked on the bows and bent on your bending block. To the 3 bows are fitted the tube ends, knuckles and deck mounts so that you can assemble the frame and begin making the canvas or vinyl cover for it.
Once the material is neatly, temporarily fixed to the frame and marked for cutting, it is removed trimmed to size and sewn together. Then the 3 bows are threaded through the one each of the 3 pockets and screwed together. You are now ready to fit the bimini to your boat.
The cover is usually made of a good quality acrylic or vinyl, in order to withstand the damaging of direct sunlight heat and UV, and come in a wide range of colours to suit anyone, even the weird & wacky.
The top's versatility is seen when it is not hot or raining and it can be closed and folded down against the side deck out of the way, in order to enjoy blue skies and the warming sunlight. Hmm, maybe even get a tan.
The top will last very well if it is cared for. It is good to wash it down with fresh water after use, particularly if you get fish guts on it while fishing, and to keep it covered while being stowed in the shed or backyard.
Dust and direct sunlight over a prolonged period will certainly shorten it life, which is why in our Manual
, we show you how to make a bootbag to zip over it while not in use. Even the wife or girlfriend will want to go fishing with you if you put a bimini on your boat. Just make sure you ask her which colour she likes before you start :)
