Anyone figure out how to modify or buy a cheaper Bimini? I had my bimini all set, and modified tow work, then I found out the local canvas guy would only modify my top for a mer $200! Bummer... so now Im back to square one. I have see quite a few on the Net, but to me it seems like any bimini that could attach to the tower legs would work right?

If you have an ideas, holler!

Thanks much!

I ordered a regular bimini from Overton's and modified it to fit under my MT2 tower.

It was pretty easy. The problem with the MT2 is the tower gets really narrow at the top. So I just ordered a top that was in between the tower width and the deck width. Then cut a section from the top tubes and bent the angles bigger to reach the gunwales. You can bend the angles on the poles by hand. Just go slow and use the ground to help support the longer pole.

I also took a couple inches off the height, which requires drilling out the rivet in the fitting then cut off whatever you need, then re drilling a new hole and re rivet.

The cover just comes down the side a little more, which is fine because it just gives more shade.

There is another thread from just a couple of weeks ago on here about a similar question.

The only issue with mine is that, with the speakers, I can't fold and unfold it with it connected to the gunwale. I need to lower it to fold it up. But I thought that was a small inconvenience, especially since I don't usually fold it up until we leave the lake.
