Umbrella HELP!

Curious what to buy for an umbrella clamp and a good place to get a "cool" umbrella. Would love to find one that says Corona Extra or similar.

Slide on umbrella clamp or one that you can move around clamp on the river.

Thanks for any help you might have.

This is my umbrella: Tiki umbrella $69.95

Fiberglasss spars hold up better to wind than wood or metal, besides it just looks cool.

For umbrella holders there are several choices:
Umbrella Holders-Deluxe for 1.5" pipe - Raft Frame Accessories - Frames & Accessories
UMBRELLA HOLDER
Clavey Raft Frame Umbrella Stand

Personally I have the DRE Deluxe one and I am fairly happy with it. After you look at the design of the ones above you may decide to build one yourself - it's mostly off the shelf Hollander fittings.

Get a tractor umbrella from an ag supply store

SummitSurfer - We have a clamp on Umbrella Holder as well as a slide on version. Both are available in 1.5" Pipe (ours) and 1.25" Pipe (NRS). Unfortunately, we don't have them up on the website for viewing at this time. But if your in town anytime soon, stop by and we'll show you what we got.

why give them free advertising, what do they give you. Go to your local bar/restaurant and ask them for an old patio umbrella. When a local place in Aspen closed down I got about 8-10 and shared them with friends, give it a try. DRE makes a mount for their frames or an NRS fitting drill a hole thru the umbrella post and fitting.
