Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here. There are lots of ways to collect water and Gord May has sent you some links that might help.
A friend of mine put a drain in the center of his bimini top and when he wanted to collect rainwater he loosened the straps a bit and it made the bimini a bit baggy and he caught quite a lot.

kind regards.
