    Hey - got a bimini for my aluminum boat, need some help getting it installed - I'm in the UTC area. Let me know if you have some experience with this and can help out - happy to pay for your time/skills.

    Pics of boat (including close-ups of where you're thinking of mounting) and of bimini would help us.

    Went to take pictures today and stumbled upon Jose with Neptune Marine Canvas. Decided to give him a call about installing the bimini top for my boat.

    Jose was at my house within an hour and had it professionally installed at a reasonable cost. His meticulousness particularly impressed me - highly recommend this guy for any marine canvas/upholstery work you need done!

    I would love to see pics of the boat and new Bimini. I am wanting to do one on my bass tracker for when the wife and kid go with me

    I don't have any pics of it with the bimini opened, will take one next time out. Here's what it looks like stowed. I highly recommend the bimini install, and not just for the wife/kids, I use it a lot when going solo just to take a rest from the sun. I'm a guy that can fish for 14+ hours straight with no breaks so I have to remind myself to do so, the bimini helps.

    The wife/kids will love it but you will also be surprised how much you will use it solo. Do it!
