Bimini Cover

Anyone know where I can get a replacement bimini cover (the one that zips up over the folded bimini top)? Mine is beginning to tear. I may be finding a roll of navy blue duct tape as a temporary solution until I find a new one...

Thanks!

I just ordered and received a factory boot for my Bimini fro Texas mastercraft. Couldn't of asked for better service. Be sitting, it's not cheap.

I searched this morning and found one at MC Parts Depot for $178, and around $225 from dealers. OUCH.

Roll of navy blue duct tape to cover the tear = $6.00

we had a new Bimini made on our existing frame by a local upholstery shop that does cars & boats, when I asked about a zippered cover like above, he asked why I wanted one ... he added straps in the same color with Velcro on the ends where we could just wrap the Bimini when folded, works like a charm when folded and we merely Velcro the straps to each other on top when open. might be an alternate to the blue duct tape.

Do you think the Velcro straps will hold up when traveling 65mph down the highway? My concern would be air getting inside it at high speeds (where the straps aren't) and cause it to rip/tear/fail.

Good thing you advised me to be sitting down when I saw your price tag......

However, you might be better off telling me assume another position for that price....

Great looking boot tho!!
