                    Finally Out !! Run to Key Largo !!

   Bimini Top

Just added 3/13/05

This all started with a Idea I had & well Here's what Happened !

.

 1.      2.

  3.       4.

 5.

1.  Bimini w/ support rods back for "running", & Looks

2.  Bimini rods forward (fish'n),

3.  Bimini closed rear ,     

4.  Bimini closed forward (Fish'n),

5  Bimini closed / storage (covered)

 

     

     

     

Accon Hardware. Quick release. These are Great

I wanted an all around top. A T-Top cannot be used where I live so I have to have a Bimini, More Sun coverage anyway. The problem is its always in the way somehow. This way I can have the support rods facing the rear , fold it up & run. When Fish'n I have the rods forward. This way when I have a Frenzie'd fish I can just un-clip the straps & push the whole top forward. Outta the Way ! I can close it forward & up, run also. When in storage / covered it lays flat. (The way it used to always be, & in the way) In the Winter way down here in South Florida I can completely remove the top ! Quickly. Nothing protrudes from the deck. This is a new style release from Accon that works . I had the other styles but these match the Non cluttered deck. The last photo is the pivot in without the strap. I can use it for the Fishing rod safety lines while Hi-Speed trolling those Frenzie Lures !

I've had this idea for some time & it all came together when talking with Accon. Just improvised by getting "6" quick release's.

I had the other style quick release's but did not match the Flat Look.
