I'm trying to fit a bimini
+ frame onto my boat and the only options I've found so far are
1. Pay $2500 to a local guy (I'm in New England).
2. Pay half that to some nice, competent folks here on the forum, but forfeit having the maker actually come aboard the boat and verify measurements, work around any issues w/ interferences, etc. since they are far away.
3. I see cheapo biminis all over the web for like $300-500 bucks (and sure, they are junk, but this thing will only see sunlight for 4 months out of the year so, and its just a shade, so junk is fine by me. $2500 for a tiny bit of shade is just nuts!!!) but for some reason they seem to only be available in 6 foot lengths or greater. It doesn't seem like you can get a 4' x 8' pre-fab. Anyone got any counter examples?!?!
