I have a 1.25", three bow Bimini
frame built for my boat
. It came off a sister ship and mounted to the side rails which is pretty weak. My plan or idea, is to drop the legs to the deck
and secure them with backing plates
frame will be about 14 feet wide and maybe 10 feet long. I further want to lose the canvas
and be able to climb up there when needed to deal with a mainsail
that doesn't want to go in the stack pack or the solar panels
Maybe this is an obvious question. I can hang off a single
bow with ease. I've done a lot of research
and can find no information regarding tubing size and thickness.
My working assumption is that it will be strong enough to support my weight. Thoughts on this question?
Going to a hardtop, how concerned do I need to be about racking and if so, how best to deal with that?
Thank you all for your wisdom
