What is a Bimini Top?
A Bimini top is an open-front canvas top for the cockpit of a boat, usually supported by a metal frame. Most Biminis can be collapsed when not in use, and raised again if shade or shelter from rain is desired.

Are Bimini tops worth it?
The main purpose of a Bimini top is to provide shade and UV protection against the sun’s rays. If for nothing else, you should purchase a high-quality Bimini top for these key reasons alone. Sun protection is essential not only for comfort but also for health and safety.
How do you waterproof a Bimini top?
Spray the fabric down every spring with a canvas protectant/waterproofer. Make sure you do this early in the day so it has plenty of time to dry (you’ll need to give it a thorough wash-down prior to application). Some of these sprays require hours to dry properly, so don’t do this just before a fishing trip.
Are Bimini tops removable?
The deck hinge uses a screw to attach the Bimini top to the boat. By replacing this screw with a quick-release pin, you can remove the Bimini with ease.
Simply unclip the front and rear hold-down straps, then remove the quick-release pin. Your Bimini top is now disconnected from your boat.
