You can get them at Overtons, just measure the width of the boat. get the one designed for a tournament boat, I think it is 30 inches high. sunbrella fabric. I have bought one from Overtons for both my 87 and 93 prostars and they work well. there are better built ones out there for almost twice the price, depends on how much you want to spend.

Here is what I did. I went to a few boat stores and looked at what they had in storage. A couple of them had ordered Bimini tops for customers that didn't pick them up or refused them. I found one in the color I like, brand new, but too tall. Got it for a third of the price. Went home and started shortening the frame to fit where I wanted it. I could not do that with my limited imagination from a catalog. My top fits my boat the way I wanted. It is tall enough for my six foot stature but isn't so tall that it looks like a clipper sailboat. A friend of mine tried the same shopping technique and wasn't able to get the same deal. Depends on the dealer and your negotiating skills.

I'm considering a bimini for my '93 Prostar as well.

Anyone have pics of a bimini on a '91-'94 prostar? I'd like to mount it to the windshield rather than the gelcoat.

I have a navy blue one off my old 1994 Prostar 190 that I plan to sell.
