Thinking about my Bimini
top. South Florida
is tough on canvas
and the threading on my 3 year old Bimini
is coming unraveled everywhere. The zippers have been mostly inoperable since forever.. The cloth looks raggedy. I didn’t skimp on the purchase
, and I used a “Florida specialist” to fabricate it, but just the same after just over there years it looks beat.
Looking at the fishing
boats and their rigid fiberglass
got me thinking. Home Depot sells 4x8 1/16 inch flexible plastic panels
and some trimming and some adhesive
and it seems as though it is flexible enough to bend with the bows.
grommets for affixing
This seems too easy, and since I don’t see any out here, I wonder what I’m missing. The total cost of this gamble is circa 100 dollars, so it’s not the end of the world if I try and fail, but before I do I am asking for any input from the wisdom of the board.
Thanks, in advance, for your thoughts.
