I think they are good people. Prices are pretty good on most stuff plus you earn points (dollars) on everything you buy to use next time you buy something from them. You didn't here it from me but they 'helped' me get a great deal for a few people on props once. ;) Give them a shot.

I forgot about that one. I got the ball rolling on that then the hurricane hit and I missed out on my own deal. :(

Try http://www.johnsonbimini.com/ Everyone says they make awsome tops but they are expensive. Will do any custom pattern you want. Supposedly the Tower Biminis are better if you have a tower though. They can probably do patterns if you want too. Give Wakeside a call. They will be glad to help you out.

Ryan who??

I have bought many, many things from Wakeside, from $5 to $1500 and have nothing but good things to say about my experiences. Points are great and reviews help you earn extra bucks toward other purchases. All my stuff was shipped same day and the one small issue I had with a product (mfg screw up) was corrected same day through email and sent out overnight......including many apologies even though they had nothing to do with mix up.

Keep it up wakeside!! ;)

im sure they could ( by the way they are also the mc dealer ) i just thought i could save some bucks if i ordered online. pattern designg
i dont know if they would be any help or not. i figure you guys would be better since your true life watersports enthusiasts. plus i can do it fomr work andf not spend time driving over there.

I believe you can order from Johnson online. They do patterns and have every color of Sunbrella fabric. They are right down the road from me. I am in Sacramento every other month the next time being Feb 23rd. I would be happy to pick it up and meet you in Sacramento to deliver it if you want. We always stay at the Hyatt near the Capitol.

When I got my bimini this summer, I researched all the online options. Then I went to my local canvas place, and he gave me a better price and better looking top than I could find online. Here's a pic - I got a three panel, but he would have made me a five panel if I wanted it. It is worth checking out the local guys. My guy is in Redding, which is a little drive for you, but let me know if you want the name.

wakeside.com is Active Watersports out of Portland Oregon! They have been the goto ski/board/etc shop in Oregon for as long as I know! They are great people and even though I have not purchased directly online with wakeside.com, I would have no problem doing so in the future. Plus I've heard awesome things about the reward points program.

Rod, there is a place out of Tracy, CA called Bimini Isle. My buddy got one from them for his Air Nautique. It turned out really nice and I think they are comparable to johnson in price. I looked into Johnson and I am going to go with these guys this summer and pruchase a new one. I looked up their website and couldn't seem to find it. I put in a call but only got voice mail so. Here is their phone number 209-832-0793. Keep us posted on the outcome.

Good memory.
Both Wakeside.com and Wakesiderides.com are affiliated. There is a click-through to shop from the forum site. Unfortunately, they are not my sites. I did some work for them and used to have the link in my signature. Free shipping on most products and the reward program are very worth while. I highly recomend them.

Thanks, I have a bit of money to spend now :D

I was thinking about ordering that adapter for the heat so that you get warm air at idle speed. However, I don't know the size of the hose on my boat....looks like a new thread! Milk, where you at?
