    Bimini top from Doug's Upholstery. Top Gun canvas and stainless steel construction. Light gray in color. High quality bimini. All mounting hardware plus storage boot included. Deploys in about twenty seconds. 96 inches wide, but I'm sure there's an inch wiggle room either way.

    $750 new

    will sell for $275

    Het, what is the approximate height from the gunwale? I'll have to do some quick measuring when I get home from work. I think my beam is only about 7'.

    I'm not positive on that question, Bob. My boat is 25" deep to the top of the rails. I'm 6' tall, and I can stand under the bimini and there is an inch or two space between the top of my head and the bimini. This would lead me to believe that it is approximately 48-49 inches high of the gunwale.

    That gives me a good starting point. I'm 6'4'' so headroom is an issue. I suspect your top be too wide for my boat. I'll reply back this evening.

    Het, it's too wide for my rig, but it's a great deal for someone.
     
  6. It's kind of sad to see the Lund get parted out.

    I think Steve will be over the sadness by next spring - maybe even before then.

    Hey, I might be interested. I know nothing of bimini tops but I want one. I have a Crestliner 1850 Sportfish. How does it mount and where? Pictures would be worth a thousand words.
     
  9. It mounts anywhere you screw the brackets on to your gunnels.

    Phatty- I don't have any pictures of it. I did, but they are on my old computer, which took a dump.

    I took a measurement of where the bimini mounts on the gunnels. Although my boat's beam is 96" wide, the bimini was mounted where it is only 88" wide.

    You'll forget everything about the Lund when you go for a ride in the Ranger.

    This is the only picture I can find of the bimini. This picture shows it in the upright, undeployed state. You should be able to get an idea of how it's mounted.
