Help with Bimini sliding tracks

Putting 8 foot Bimini on 14 foot raft and would like to mount on sliding tracks. Any recommendations on what size tracks and where to purchase. Thanks!

I have slide tracks I got from river sombrero. They work great. 8' Bimini on 14' boat. They are 36" long.

The track can be easily cut down so if you get the 36" track then you can use it anywhere from 36" on down. That being said, know that every length of track you have on your rail or decking is space that becomes more challenging to use so use the LEAST amount of rail needed to accomplish what you need.

Thanks for the replies. River Sombrero seems in line with others available. I think I ll go with their 3 footers and as suggested cut shorter if I can. Appreciate the help!
