bimini top

I have a 91 prostar 190 and am thinking of adding a bimini . Did mc make a factory one back then ? If not what has everyone else found to be the best option ? Want to do as little drilling as possible !

Don't think MC made their biminis back then but I could be wrong...check Barts and Overton's as a few people on the board here got their from these 2 companies.


I am planning on ordering one for our 94 and will most likely get one from Bart's with the hole cut out for the FlyHigh.


No matter how you look at it, you will have to drill a few holes...easy to do correctly.


There was a bimini top on the baord here sometime this summer...attached right to the windshield but I do believe that the person still had to drill holes for the front straps...

I have a 94 ps205. I am also looking to put one on. Cannot decide on a height. Any suggestions and or pictures would be great. Also how long of a top.

I have a 5 foot long, 36 inch high....I actually cut it down a bit lower for more protection.

I mounted it where the windshield meets the boat.

I already had the bimini frame for my boat, but I got replacement canvas at Childres Products - genuine sunbrella fabric - and it was very affordable

As part of your planning, think through how you would want the bimini to be stored. I prefer biminis that are mounted in a way that they fold forward and will lie flat right in front of the windshield...when not in use you can wrap the boot around it and run with it folded and out of the way. Some folks mount to the top of the windshield frame, or inside it, which prevents this...folded back onto the engine cover.

I don't think material really matters. I have one in Sunbrella and another in a cheaper fabric...both keep off the sun, and occasionally the rain....
