We always run from the FB. I'd get rid of my lower helm if I could, it's a waste of space for us and just added complication. Plus, there is nowhere to sit. At some point we may cruise in cooler...

Our Stamoid Bimini and full enclosure came in around $6,000. We saved a little money by taking off the venturi windscreen, which is pretty much useless anyway, especially if you have an enclosure.

We redid ours about 4 or 5 years ago, I think it was around $ 3,500. BUT we used an upholsterer who was just beginning to work in the marine industry and was well below the market, cost wise. She...
