Bimini Advice

We have a Dodger on the 36' Beneteau sailboat that we recently bought but would also like to add a Bimini. Any advice? Do you have to have it custom made to look professional or are there other options? It would also be nice to have a complete enclosure for the cockpit but I assume that would be cost prohibitive. Our boat is in the San Diego area. Thank you in advance.

Re: Bimini Advice

A recent quote came in at 2800 (UK) with new frame and sprayhood for us. We will fit one eventually but not just yet.

The other option is a removable bimini. The sort of thing that fits on a speed boat. I found one with rubber feet that fits perfectly and cost us 160. Does quite a good job of keeping the rain as well as the sun off. However, it does get in the way of the main sheet as a full bimini will.
