The bimimi cover on our 37 Lagoon
TPI cat is getting tired and worn out and needs to be replaced. It is currently constructed of an aluminum
frame with a sunbrella cover. A visitor on our boat mentioned that he had made a hard cover for his bimin which was a similar design to our. With the width of the catamaran
, it would be fantastic to be able to walk on the bimini
when dealing with the main sail. It would also need to be able to incorporate a windshield, side and back shade covers and I would also like to incorporate a water
catcher system. I believe the currentily structure will easily support a hard top.
Here are my questions - any suggestions would be appreciated.
How would I go about making a mold
How would I form the "eavestrough" around the edge of the bimini
to act as the rain catcher?
What materials should I use to keep the hardtop strong but light?
How thick do I have to make it?
Thanks in advance for any advice or direction
