Looking for bimini ideas


We just sold our Albin 25 and now have some fun money to put into our Willard.

We have a 1977 Willard 30/4 and would like to get a bimini made for it.* I contacted one place in La Conner , where she is moored, and they were having issues building one with the mast directly behind the flybridge helm bench.* I am looking for photos of some Willards with biminis that also have a mast directly adjacent and to the rear of the helm bench on the flybridge. I want to send them to the shop owner.

Am I off in thinking this should not be a difficult thing for a shop to build?

Maybe I should look for a different place to build it.* Any recommendations about that?* We are moored in La Conner, WA.

Last summer in Desolation Sound our flybridge felt like a "Frybridge" without shade.

RE: Looking for bimini ideas

No, you are not wrong. For each problem there is a solution.

Check out "Oyster Creek Canvas" in Bellingham. I hear really good things about them.
