Our daughter is now ready for a summer in the boat, so the PS 190 has to lose it's Tee-Top and get a new Bimini top. I got a few questions for those of you who have Biminis on their boat. Where to buy Biminis online? What brand do you recommend? I am going with the Sunbrella material, but I am having a hard time picking the color. What color do you think would match the colors of my boat? The interior colors match the picture.
Thanks for any help.

I'd certainly go with black.

We have a Johnson Bimini.......love the quality.....was a little more expensive than others but the fit was perfect and color choices excellent.

Black would look good on your boat.

That would look sharp.

I just bought a westland bimini (black sunbrella) from go2marine for 276.00 and free shipping. It was the cheapest I found anywhere. Hoping the quality is good.

I bought one too from them. Seems like the exact one Discount Inboard sells for almost a $100 more. I'm happy with the quality and even happier with the price!

Ok, so I have finally had the time to move forward on this project. So what should the dimensions for my PS 190 Bimini be? What size do you guys have? Width size, Height size and Length size?
Thanks for any and all advise and thanks for the photos. I am going to go with the all black color like Footin has.

Looks great. Was it a total custom job? Did they keep the measurements and or design as a template for other Mastercraft boat owners? I live on the other side of the country (Seattle), any idea how I could get one made for me? T
Thanks

I'm wanting a bimini also but my 205v has what I believe is an aftermarket tower and it has no markings as to what kind. Who, where and what would I have to do to get the measurements right to fit with my tower?
Here's a pic.

Rockman, thanks that is exactly the Bimini that I was looking at. I have been going back and forth over black or gray like yours. Wondering if black gets to hot or not?

I have a black sunbrella bimini and the fabric does not get hot at all really. The vinyl get much hotter.

Here's my buddies 190 bimini.... always thought it looked good. I vote for black with some color. He went with largest possible bimini... for the short people. I think you need to mimic the post above wiht the really cool installation (linked again below):

I chose the gray to give some contrast...I stayed away from the black or the blues as they might absorb more of the heat.

Bryan on the board here went with a white one on his 94 205.

Yes I did. It has not left the boat since install. That thing is ALWAYS up. If the passengers want a ton of sun they can move elsewhere :-)
