RE: Bye bye Bimini!

Same thing happened to me last year. The cheap aluminum frame broke and spent the night gouging the side of the bridge. I have since replaced it with stainless and now never leave it up when I leave the boat, just use the bridge cover for protection. Buffing out the f-glass and re-painting the bridge stripe are still on my to do list. One benefit of a 26 year old boat is the battle scars don't show up that bad.
