How to measure for a universal bimini top

Measuring Instructions:

STEP 1
Length (in feet)

Measure from A to B:
And determine the amount of coverage you want from your Bimini.
Length options are: 5’, 6, 7’ and 8 feet
Note: We do not recommend installing the bimini top beyond the windshield. Damage or injuries may occur with this type of installation.

STEP 2
Width (in inches)

Measure from C to D:

The width is the distance between the mounting points

The pivotal mounting point will be approximately at the center point of the top on each side of the boat. Deck hinges and side mounts included with the top are designed to mount on a variety of flat surfaces. Optional mounts are available for rail mounting.

At this point select a point of each side of the boat that will be the middle of the bimini based upon desired length. These are points the mounts will be attached.

Width options are in 6” increments, ranging from 54’’ to 96’’. Note that the width is listed in a range of widths; these tops are adjustable to accommodate these ranges.

Note: We do not recommend installing the bimini top directly onto the windshield. Damage or injuries may occur with this type of installation.

STEP 3
Height (in inches)

Measure from E to F:

From the centerline of the floor of the boat, determine how much headroom you want for the bimini.

It is recommended to allow 72” of standing height. Take into consideration that the highest the top is, the more you risk losing the shading effect. On the other hand, the lower the top is, the more difficult it becomes to move around the boat.

Total desired height is achieved as follows:

Floor to mounting point height: Measure the distance from the floor to the mounting point on the sides of the boat.

Subtract that measurement from your total desired height. This is your bimini height.

Measure the width of the tower at the desired mounting point (line A)

 

 

STEP 2

Height

Next, determine the height of the tower bimini by measuring up, 30’’ from the mounting point A, the amount of clearance you will need.

 

 

STEP 3

Width point B (width at top)

Determine the width of the tower itself at the top, to ensure the angle of your tower will accommodate your bimini selection.

Find your mounting width measurements below, and make sure your width at the top of the tower at point B equals or is greater than the measurement listed.

Mounting width (A)
Width at top (B)
73" - 78"
56"
79" - 84"
