I have the Downriver umbrella holder which has worked great on my NRS frame. On the San Juan it was bomber with crazy 40 mph gusts, it was the umbrella that took a hit. I bought this holder when it was on sale for $19. It's worth doing a search for this item and see if you can get a deal on it somewhere.
Here is the pic and description.....

Nice, but what happens if you drop an oar? Looks like they could possibly bend the canopy frame.

I've done close to the same but used a lo-pro and NRS pipe, two spring clips. Sam's Club umbrella, cut down the bottom section to height I wanted and reinforced with a dowel inside the umbrella base. Pop the clip and take the pipe off with the umbrella base.

the cheap umbrellas don't hold up to wind like bimini's do though. I've seen some square umbrellas with grommets on the corners for tie downs like a bimini would have. I've seen some cool shade tents made with tent poles and imagination too.
