Do you have a tower? Is it a full tower or a mini tower? Here is a picture of my bimini on my 03 mini tower which is the same as an 07 mini tower bimini.

with or without a tower is important. I mounted my bimini to my tower frame instead of the tower uprights, so that I could remove the tower and still run the bimini.

RIC - Is that a factory MC bimini? I too am getting ready to add a bimini to my new 06 197. I already have installed the minitower and looking at options for the top. If it is aftermarket, who?

thanks

I have a mini tower and that same top but I took the tower off. It wont fit in my lake house and I cant lift it with out it hiting the roof. Also even though its a mini tower The bimini is to high and does not shade in the after noon. Since I dont wake board I dont need the tower. I like the bimini top. Just wonderd if any one had one that was not on the tower that looks the same Thanks.

deck mounted bimini, lays flat in front of winshield when not in use. Sorry , not the best picture but I lost the others when my hard drive died.

Ski Bum,
I just added a mini tower to my 197 and now my MC bimini won't fit. Are you interested in a swap if you have the one that fits over a mini tower?

thanks Yes, that is a factory MC bimini. I should've taken a shot with the bimini open. The mounts are the round pop-in pivot type, standard for MC, but I mounted them onto the tower base. The installation of the mounts is a 2 person (or more) job so that you don't scratch up everything, but it works great for us! (now it's a one person job to take the bimini in and out of the boat)
