We got tired of walking around our Bimini when the boat was in the garage and the bimini was laying on the direct-drive engine cover. Attached are pics of my solution. The chain is plastic and I might get rid of the bungee cord and just buy a longer piece of chain to make it look better.

Since the boat isn't in the EXACT same location each time we put the boat away, I wanted a solution that allowed for that.

The wallboard anchors shown work great and don't even require a pilot hole to be drilled first. You will see that I hit a stud on my first attempt, hence the small patch job.

Those wall anchors are the best! Those appear to be the 30lb ones? I've got them all over my house mainly in the closets holding up our shelving.

I remember the days when the idea was to find the studs.:cool:

Pretty cool idea. Mine sits right under the garage door opener, so I just lean it up against it...but I will keep it in mind for my next garage.
