Ok, I really like the Johnson Biminis and all but in all your opinions what makes them worth more than say the ones you can buy at Overtons? I have never bought a bimini before so don't have a clue about what to look for when buying one. Please give advice if you have knowledge on the subject

Mine was $750.00 and installs to the windshield frame. Done by the dealer I believe but could have been done at the factory. I have seen the exact brackets I have on my frame in Ovrtns. It works awesome, completely collapsable. I am not sure about the top frame for yours. Perhaps you could measure the difference and go from there.

If you could put the two side by side Jeff you'd see. No BS.

If you're going to spend that much money, contact your local MC dealer and ask them what kind of deal they'll cut you on an OEM top. The fit is pretty great. I got them to throw mine in as a package deal and it was less expensive than the Johnson top. ($400 approx.).

East, do you have a picture of your boat with the top up? I have a 205 and would like to see how high your top is.

I have a navy bimini from johnson's that was on my 95 PS 205 for about a year before I put a tower on it. Its been sitting in my garage for about two years now. It has the zipper for a extended pylon - I paid $650 before shipping and would sell it for $225 plus shipping if you're interested.

Edit - tried posting pic, no luck, reply and I'll e-mail.

Thanks!
