The bimini that I have on my boat wasn't designed for the tower and needs a little work to ease the "putting up and down". The bimini actually fits and it looks great up but it is such a tight fit that it is just a pain in the ass to use. I wanted to take maybe an 1" out of the width and maybe widen the upper bends and then add a couple of bends at the bottom of the support legs so everything would line up with the mounts.
Does anybody have any ides on what would be the best way to take out an inch in width? Maybe cut in the middle and then rivet them back together using a splice piece?
Any ides on what would be the best way to create the bends without professional pipe benders?
I would love to buy a nice new bimini from somewhere like towerbiminis.com but the price is prohibitive and this one is in such good shape and almost fits right now.
