Looking to put some shade over my head on my Montauk. What are other folks using - Bimini or T-Tops for their Montauks?

I used a Mills bimini for 8-years. I like bimini because they fold down out of the way. Sometimes you want the sun & sky over you... and nothing else. T-tops & hard-tops are tough to get rid of.

I was out on a friends montauk that had one and loved it, I've wanted one for my montauk ever since.
If shade is your biggest concern however, the bimini may be the way to go. The t-top doesn't seem to provide as much shade since it is usually mounted a bit higher than a bimini would be.
On the plus side, the t-top provides a much roomier feel in the boat. It is also a great way to get fishing gear and electronics out of the way also. Makes for good hand holds in heavy seas.
