38' Catalina Bimini Design

Greeting Cruisers,

I am living on a 38' Catalina in Lahina Maui and need shade for my cockpit badly.

I want to install a bimini but am running into difficulities on which on to buy. Want it to be strong enough to put a solar panel on it.

Any assistance on where I should be shopping would be greatly appreciated.

Re: 38' Catalina Bimini Design /

Do you have a dodger, is your boat a Mull design ? or is that a 36 ? Where does your main sheet attach , I would think companion way bridge . I have seen this set up before, where it goes dodger, main sheet and then bimini . Is there a canvas shop available ? I like a good old boom tent. But you can't put a solar panel on that . I have seen solar panels mounted on a dodger.
