    Posted: January-23-2023 at 3:10pm
I'm planning to add a bimini to my 1982 SN. I have a tower fitted to my boat, which imposes some constraints on how low I can mount the bimini. Given how high the bimini has to be mounted and how quickly the bow of the boat starts tapering in front of the windscreen, I'm having some trouble figuring out where the best spots will be to attach the front support straps to the boat. The legs of the bimini are effectively as wide as the gunwales, so I'm not sure where or how to attach the front support straps so that they pull the bimini forward and outward to ensure optimal tensioning. Any thoughts or advice will be much appreciated!

I dont like drilling holes in the glass. Here in Georgia a bimini is a must . I have installed many bimini's on my boats . I always put the front straps in the rub rail ,

Never considered that - sounds like a great option for getting the straps spread apart as much as possible, thanks.
