Had the same problem with the boat
I bought a few years ago. The bimini
frame was mounted on the cockpit sides and I would often hit my head
on them when mooring
or using the winches and could not sit on the cockpit sides, which I like to do when under sail.
In addition five solar panels
were mounted on the bimini which was only fixed down with four 1" x 10 screws and a couple of braces with a single
3/16" grub screws holding the end fittings on. There were also a number of wires and cables
strung about which also interfered with mooring
I have now gotten rid of the entire mess, added to and remounted the solar panels
in an alloy frame which is supported on the sheer at it's corners, installed a "ceiling" which is sealed to the frame around it's edges to collect rain water
and will be installing roll down curtains which store on the panel frame when rolled up. All the wires, cables
drain tubes are pass down through the forward supports.
A lot of that "storable" stuff is OK for marina boats which only get sailed on the occasional weekend but totally impractical for the cruiser who might want to reconfigure things two or three times a day.It drives you nuts zipping it on and off and folding and storing it and pretty soon it's only used to take up valuable storage
space. If you're going cruising and will be working your boat a lot, work
towards ditching the lot and replacing it with something more practical.
