If your mounting width is 79, you can probably go with either the 73-78 or the next size up. The bimini tubes are pretty flexible and will bend in or out quite a bit. If you plan to be able to fold it forward in front of the windshield, 73-78 might cause the frame to rub/bind on the side windshields when rotated forwarded. If you confirm 79" and they offer a 79-xx size, I would go with that one.

Either way, just do it. I went for years without a bimini because I didn't want to drill holes; damn I was dumb!

I agree with ProstarSlalom. I installed one on a 1996 PS this year and went with the 73-78. The bars are flexible and they worked great.

My mounts were located on the windshield frame. So take these measurements with that grain of salt. Here is what my measurements were.

The width from mount to mount is 73.75"
The height from gunnel deck to the top of the canvas is 25"
The height from mount to the top of the canvas is 17"
The distance from the mounting point on the windshield to the back edge of the windshield is 15".

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
