I installed it opposite direction so it lays flat on the bars over the front in front of the windshield. Try it both ways to see what you like better, also get final position PERFECT to where you want it before you drill into the boat!
You have to pull (stretch the down polls out) to get them over the sides of the windshield, but I think it gives a nice tight look without being huge and detracting.
I think I'm ready to do the install on the bimini. I got most of the other projects looking pretty good including the engine box insulation, new bilge blower hose, swim step refinish etc. I even have some new tires on the way from Mr. Mastercraft. I looked over the instructions that came from iboats and I have looked at the great pics of your boat with the bimini up. Are you happy with your install? Would you do anything different? It looks like it is done opposite of the instructions. Is there a reason for that? I know lots of questions. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Hope you are getting on the water this weekend. I am kind of stuck at home this so I the next best thing is to work on the boat of course. Andy
