RE: Ideas for our bimini enclosure

Gonzo, I will say that if you boat in really hot areas that even a full enclosure with smileys everywhere will still inhibit the breeze. For optimum use, you would fully uninstall the enclosure in the Spring and then re install it in the fall. If you are implying that you will uninstall/reinstall every time you come down to the boat, that will be a major PIA as well as cause significant wear and tear and zippers and fasteners.
No... We would only use the panels as weather dictates. They will likely stay off through the summer and only go on in the fall. The front panels will go on in light rain as needed during the season. We far prefer the open feel.


Now I see what you and Peter are talking about regarding the bows. Good tip. Thanks.
