Gotta give a shout-out to Ian at onlyinboards.com for hooking me up with a new tower bimini. Arrived yesterday, installed last night, and everything seems to work perfectly. One question though. Do you use the straps on the boot to connect it to the tower when folded up (not in use) and trailering? This seems to be the only way it stays up and out of the way (I'm assuming so).
