Not one size fits all. We meet with you at your boat to establish your needs and desires. We will photomodel your boat, computer generate your bimini, enclosure, or dodger, and place it on the photo of your boat, so that you can see exactly what the finished product will be.
The lines of your boat are considered as well as headroom and visibility requirements. All frames are designed using Autocad. We use only heavy walled, (.065) stainless steel tubing and stainless steel fittings. The frame is supported, whenever possible, by rigid supports to make your frame strong, as well as to keep pathways clear of straps. Once the frame is installed and adjusted, the set screws are removed and replaced by 3/16″ stainless steel rivets to assure safety while underway.
All exterior products are stitched with Tenara® (Gore Tex). This eliminates later restitching, as the thread is guaranteed to last as long as the fabric. All frame pockets are zippered to allow you to remove the canvas quickly and easily. All window panels in enclosures are individually removable. No raw edges appear, all fabric is heatcut to prevent fraying.
All fasteners are bedded with compound, and through-bolted if necessary.
All our biminis — whether for power or sail boats — are designed to meet your headroom, shade, visibility, and aesthetic requirements. In addition, our sailboat biminis accommodate backstays and running rigging.
We offer a range of materials for hard top and bimini windows to meet your cost and performance requirements. Our clear products include, in order of performance and cost:
Hard panels: Acrylic, or Rainier Bonded Windows
40 gauge pressed polished sheet vinyl: used for optical clarity for forward panels, or all panels, depending on budget
40 gauge extruded roll vinyl: for small windows on sides of runabouts, or for sides and aft curtains of bridge enclosures
“U” zippers can be installed in most panels. Screens can be included. Roll up straps are provided.
Choose either the “California Style”, where the clear vinyl sides zip off, or the “Traditional Style”, which is all one piece. The center panel opens for ventilation on both. Leather reinforces the aft bow where people tend to grab on. An extra handhold can be added aft or on the sides. A covered zipper can be added to accommodate a fly or a connector to a bimini.
Priced by the linear foot, we measure your furled sail. The mast collar has Velcro® and a tie for ease of putting on the cover and security. A covered zipper secures the front, twistlocks are used in the bottom, with attention to sheets, vangs, and other obstructions. Chafe protection for winches and other hardware is installed where appropriate. Custom graphics are available for a distinctive look.
All sorts of covers can be made for any part or accessory of your boat, such as hatches, grills, bicycles,etc.
