I ordered it before I left afghanistan and just now got around to installing it...

The Bimini is in the factory position and I will move it more forward when I have a chance.

I cant wait to try it out this weekend, I have never rode behind a boat with a tower before.

See what you think...

will the bottom pieces flip? looks like it would follow the windshield better if they will.

yep, the bottom pieces are installed backwards. I bet you can just take them off and switch them around though.

I am a moron...

I made sure everything was perfectly aligned spent a couple days measuring and rechecking before I drilled and I install the lowers backwards....

They should flip right around, I will lift the upper part off as one piece and then simply flip the lowers..

So much for me bragging about my install..

Kinda funny though if you think about it.

I'll post more pictures tomorrow of the correct install....

thanks for the catch 882001........

I kind of like the look with them backwards. Gives it a little different look. But I would get really annoyed with everyone saying "you mounted that backwards"

You're going to love riding off a tower. It takes a few jumps to get used to it, but you will adjust quickly and never want to ride from the "ski-pylon" again.

Have fun

yea they will flip around and yea there pretty nice towers just tighten up the set screws and the bolts before you ride they tend to come loose very easy but i used locktight on everything so its not so bad anymore

Did anybody else not notice Fakeboard Boat... That's one of the funniest things I've ever read. I'm adding that to my vocabulary.

Kelly... Looks great. Have fun, you deserve it.

Hopefully that rack on the port side is for a kneeboard and not a surfboard!
