Video Series – Building a Carbon Fiber Hard Top Bimini

Biminis are often victim to the very elements they protect you from. Sun, salt and excessive wind can batter even the most stable of biminis and if you have yet to replace one, finding one that fits your existing frame might not be as easy as you hope.  This 3-part video series shows how a boat owner conquered this dilemma, by constructing a hard top bimini to the frame already on a Black Watch 26.

This new bimini has many advantages over the typical canvas types we are used to seeing on the water. Using carbon fiber to construct the new panels, this new solid top adds serious protection from the elements, reduces glare for the driver with it’s black underside and adds a bunch of storage on top for boards of all shapes and sizes.

Check out the construction of this ingenious bimini in our 3-part video series that takes you through the whole process.  If you’re searching for a fun improvement to your current bimini situation, this is a scalable project that is not too difficult for most handy DIY boaters. Enjoy!

    • Well…it’s not a canvas bimini but if you subscribe to the thought that a bimini is a structure to protect you from the sun and elements – then we call this a Hard Top Bimini. (as do many others. Google HARD TOP BIMINI. We are in good company!)
