Extended Pylon AND Bimini? (1989 Prostar)

Hi All - I would like to get an extended pylon for my 1989 Prostar but am concerned with looks and utility with my bimini. Unfortunately I am not willing to get ride of the bimini because my local lakes are pretty hot! Does anyone have pictures, preferences, advice, anything to share with me (related to bimini's and extended pylons)?

Being a newbie (had my Prostar for less than a year), I appreciate your help and am more than happy returning info (assuming I can help).

Thank you!

-Charlie

That's it. Thanks Rockman.
Is your pylon going through your bimini? If so, do you like or dislike that style at all?
What kind of pressure does the cable to the bow put on the bimini?
Any other info/recomendations/concerns you have?

Thank you again for your help!!!

Just like Rockman's.



I also had a piece of leather sewn on where the strap could have frayed the fabric.

Thank you all for your posts. I like the look of extensions over towers on these boats; BIG TIME!

As far as manufacturers go; it appears ROCKMANS is made by 'flyhigh'. What about SODAR's and SALTDOG's?

Do you guys have any complaints (too much flex, rattling, etc) about the extended pylon?

I have a Skylon I have not yet attached or test fitted on my 93 PS205. I can not find anyone to do the work to modify my bimini canvas for an affordable rate.

I also have a cross member on the bimini that may or may not conflict with the pole.

I had a zipper sewn in my Bimini, so when I wanted to use the Fly High pylon, it just fit right through the hole. Looked nice and worked great.
