I dunno, Gord. I REALLY liked the workmanship on the one Ralph had redone. PM or call him about it. Or take Daniels for free!

Sunbrella material is the way to go....There is a few blues to choose from but pacific blue is the most common.

i bought an ebay bimini.  its nice for what it is.  the poles are thin and i have yet to try driving around with it up but it seems like it might be kinda flimsy.  we'll see this fathers day weekend.

Ka0tyk how did the eBay bimini work out for you? I'm in the market for one myself and Im a little curious. The eBay deal posted above seems a little to good to be true.

it worked great the couple times i took the boat out with it.  but the aluminum poles were thin, it came with plastic hardware, etc.  i wouldnt be doing any WOT pulls with it on, but it wasnt super crappy by any means and it worked. 

with my new boat ill probably be doing a custom bimini.

I bought my all SS 7/8 pacific blue from safguard on ebay for under 300...I even modified it for a low flat look. It doesn't balloon like most others I see...keeps the same look at fast speed with little drag.
