I am new to the site and may have missed it in someone else's thread, but has anyone seen what the bimini will look like on the new power towers?

I don't believe a photo has been post. I'm not even sure if the design has been finalized.

I have not seen it, but I do believe there are pictures out there. Hopefully someone (dealer) will post them up for us.

seen photo's at dealership when we pickup our new boat. The email indicated they would go into production soon. Check with your dealer.

I'm waiting for their final product for the bimini to see how functional it is with the new tower. Hoping it's not a hard top or cargo rack, but it will still fold up. Patiently waiting.....

the photos I saw were a canvas top with steel frame. The photos were not good quaity, and were small, so you could not see much.

I'm sure there are a number of ways the engineers could do this.

When I spoke to Jim Schultz he indicated it would be foldable(telescopic). I could not tell from the photos. I am of the assumption it folds or telescopes from the tower. I can see that the canvas attaches to the rear horizontal tube as with the other towers, but this is not much help. The photo's I saw were part of a email and not high resolution.

I was told that there will be one on an x25 at the boat show in Knoxville on the 13th. If so and no pics have made it here I will get good ones at all angles.

I saw some photos from an email, I photoshop'd them, but I still cannot see if it's foldable. I would great if someone has pics of it folded up.

The bimini is almost the same as it is now. It rolls up into the tower and then can be extended with 4 poles just like the current ZFT3 towered bimini.
