    I purchased my first boat (1998 Sea Ray 210 Bow Rider) in the fall. I would like to get a bimini top for it this year. Where is the best place to look? Online or locally? Thanks for the help!

    Beery, I've had good luck using local vendors to make my last 3 biminis. Since you have some time before you can get the boat out of storage start giving some thought of any ways you might want to customize the canvas. Things like a larger window here or an aft frame so you can make a camper canvas at the stern rather than the traditional slope down canvas. That gives a lot more usable space in the cockpit and is easy to add in before it's built.

    Thank you! I'm going to spend the next few weeks looking around locally. I'll try to check back in once I find a solution.

    Or the OEM supplier to SeaRay for your boat was Great Lakes Boat Top, you should be able to get a complete OEM bimini from them.

    +1 on Great Lakes. They probably already have the template

    Thanks OlliC! Nice lookin Weekender! I've requested a quote from Great Lakes. I'm hoping that they can provide the frame as well as the boat didn't come with the canvas or frame when I purchased it.

    All of the hardware will be provided if you order the Bimini that way - you just need to be aware that the shipping is expensive as the frame bows are single pieces and can not be shipped via FedEx Ground - they must go via freight carrier.

    Thanks for the info. I understand the shipping is going to be a big chunk of the cost. Ideally I could find one close to where I live in Northern Michigan. I'd be interested in hearing more about the discount for CSR members. I'll PM with my details.

    Email was sent. If the total package with shipping is to much for a factory replacement we can explore other options available for Bimini tops.
