Measuring instructions

1.Length
Using a tape measure, decide what area or portion of the boat you would like the top to cover (4’ to 8’ lengths available).

2. Mounting
Two 90 degree standard deck mounts are included with each bimini for mounting on a horizontal surface, however several other types of mounts are available for mounting on vertical, angled, curved or rounded areas. The pivotal mounting point where the top’s main bow attaches on each side of the boat is approximately half way between the front and the rear of the top. Determine the best location to install the mounts (one on each side of the boat). Please note: Do not install bimini mounts on windshield wings if they are not stout enough to handle the pressure or if there is a possibility of shattering the glass when drilling.

3. Determine Width of Top
Measure the distance across the boat from one mounting point to the other to determine the width of the top you need. Select the pivotal mounting point (the center point of the bimini top on each side of the boat). Find your width in the appropriate range on the bimini option you need.

4. Height
To determine how high a top you need, measure from the pre-determined mounting point straight up until you reach the height you desire. The top heights listed are from the point on the boat where the top is mounted straight up to the very top portion of the bimini.Find the appropriate range on the bimini option selected.

設置作業
メインポールのデッキへの取り付けは、デッキが傾斜している為傾斜板を作って水平にして、その上にメインポールをビス止めする方法をとった。板はチーク材とデッキ材を使用。

メインポールを後ろ側で支えるサポートポール(アルミ)は通常はデッキの上から取るのだろうが、出来るだけデッキに穴を開けたくないのと、ちょうどクリートの辺りになって作業の邪魔になりそうなのでキャプテンチェアーの上に取り付けることにした。

サポートポールが長すぎるとビミニの後が高くなり、短いと低くなる。即ちビミニの前後バランスをとるのが一人の作業ではなかなか難しい。
ビミニを展開して前後バランスを見て調整、左右バランスを見て調整という作業を何度も繰り返してサポートポールの足の長さを決め、カナノコで切断。
余裕をもって少し長めに、のはずだったのだが、なぜか逆に短すぎたようだ。後が下がっている。

また、ビミニの高さはオリジナルのままで、ブームには干渉しないようだが、実際にセールアップして帆走する場合のことを考えるともう少し低くしたい気もする。高さを下げる為にはメインポールをカットしなければならないが、一人の作業でサポートポールの高さ調整で手こずったので、このまま少し様子を見ることにする。
