Sorry, bad wording. I would buy another bimini, although It would still hurt me to spend that amount of $$$ on it. I wouldn't buy a different type of bimini (e.g. gunwale mounted, universal tower mounted or over the top), at least not for my application.

Here's what it looks like:

Jeff d...that bimini looks huge. Appears it comes over windshield quite a ways. Curious...what is it like taking the boards off the racks with bimini extended?

It doesn't really interfere with getting boards off the racks.

Any bimini that is integrated into the tower is a little more difficult to use than a freestanding gunwale mount bimini, so take it with a grain of salt. Tower bikini's uses Sunbrella and stainless tubing... which is one of the reasons I would pay to upgrade to the stainless connectors. Lastly, the fabric towerbiminis use is higher quality than the Surlast fabric that OEM MasterCraft uses. All in all, the only reason I would go elsewhere is that I personally have local shops that can do just as good of a job as them. However, if you are in a location that does not have the local talent, towerbiminis is your huckleberry.

anyone have any thoughts on the aluminum frame vs the stainless frame? although its more expensive its only $45... just trying to justify it. with shipping im looking at almost $1000 for this thing..

The price for a unit is a deterrent for me as well. I'll probably end up getting one, though. I like the look, and the only other option I've found is this:, which IMO looks just as nice as the tower bimini, but doesn't look like it would fold up well at all, which is a must for me since I have to fold down the tower to store it in my garage.

$45 for stainless thats a no brainer
