Spent the afternoon building a 8X6 bimini top for my boat. I think it is sharp and very stable. Got all the parts at Home Depot and I still don't have $40.00 into it.

Does it fold up out of the way with no sharp edges? I sometimes have to drop mine like going through a fish ladder or under extreme winds (during camp)

Yea no sharp edges or pointy parts. Its pretty simple. Thats why we ask why it works. I am thinking of doing a u tube video, but not sure how. So if you would like to know ask me how i did it. p/s I am a master electrition and rock buggy fab guy. But that just helped me figure it all out. I only used simple tools.

Lemme guess. Emt. Bender. Couplings. Tarp

Is it too tall to get effective shade under it?

$40 is impressive. I spent about that much making a frame mount slide rack for mine

I was supposed to use the money from the trust funds for singing lessons but bought new oars instead

Whatever helps float your boat and gets you on the river. The bimini looks like it might work well, though it seems a bit high.
Mine is 54" which i have to either scout from below or pull in the oars and scout from the drybox on my seat. On Aug trip on the 45th parallel the angle of the sun is not overhead at the hottest part of the day. Thats the reason i ask about the height being effective. No sense making shade for the fishes

I built something like that for my cat, but I used the black screen fabric that you find on a roll at Home Depot and I then attached it by putting in grommets and using bungees. I found it works much better with the wind. My two cents

No I am with you Edd. I looked every where here in Montrose, even Home Depot put I didnt find it. However I was looking of a 6X8 tarp of that style. By the foot makes sence too. On eBay they were running around $20, but I think it is worth it. p/s on ebay you can get it in white as well I think that might be even cooler.

$20 a foot or for the whole tarp?
