Selecting the Right Bimini Top & Frame
Choosing the right fender size and quantity of boat fenders is critical to protecting your boat. The Taylor Made boat size chart is the minimum recommendation and it is advised to consult with your marina and docking neighbors to be sure you have adequate protection for prevailing conditions.
Step 1 – Select the Frame
- Determine the length: 4′, 6′, or 8′.
- Determine the height: 36″ 42″, or 54″. This is the maximum standing height under the frame; measured from the mounting location points.
- Determine the width: 60″ to 103″.
- Measure from the mounting point on one side of the boat to the same location on the opposite side of the boat (this is not the same as “beam width” or boat width).
- Widths of the Bimini BoaTops are specified in increments of 6″ (choose the width that best matches your mounting point measurement).
- Frames are designed as “knock-down” frames, meaning they snap together via double-sided snap buttons.
- 3-Bow or 4-Bow: This refers to the number of bows that make up the frame. 3-bow for the 4 ft. and 6 ft. length tops, and 4-bow for 8 ft. long tops.
- All sizes ship unassembled, via UPS or FedEx.
Step 2 – Select the Fabric
From the economical Hot Shot™ pigment-dyed fabric to the premier durability and style of Sunbrella®, the choice is yours when it comes to your bimini. All of our fabric choices are treated for water repellency and mildew resistance to withstand the harsh marine environment.
Step 3 – Select the Storage Boot
Zippered storage boots provide a convenient way to keep your top clean and neat while being stored. Boot sizes are determined by frame width. Boots are available in the same fabrics as the tops above. All boots feature full-length separating zippers for easy on/off.
