Whoa! Looks good. That is what I am going with, when the time comes to replace the present bimini (hopefully several years yet).

Is that a "Hardtotop" unit? They make a very slick and affordable hard-top option for Biminis..

That looks good. A friend put one like that on a Bayliner 4588 and it looks great.

I've often wondered what those thing sound like when it's raining. Must be kind-of musical.

Looking good, Sergio!
Is that custom built or off the shelf?

My bimini is at the the end of it's life, and I'm looking at other options. I'd like to shape it to match the rounded cockpit, and I can't find anything semi-circular. Looks like I will have to fabricate my own.

Is that a fiberglass hardtop? It looks very similar to our hurculon top on an aluminum frame. Love it.

Last year, in St Maarten we suffer a hurricane that got our Bimini and we decided to build a new hard top by fiberglass. We used 3 sheets of fiberglass and honeycomb, put wires to lights and sound.
In January I'll insert 4 250w solar panels on the top.
I'll post pictures

Can't wait to see the pictures. I'm seriously thinking about the same thing.
