I really need to get a new bimini before I fry this summer. I'm thinking now to get maximum protection from an 8' long 4 bow bimini. Does anyone have one on their boat?

I'm still waiting for Mills to get back to me about the size of their tops--since last thursday. I losing faith. the longer the better if u ask me.

Had an intetesting meeting with AUBV in the NJ ocean this weekend--said for those prices, he would consider t top. Ove to lnow what t top might cost.

NB

I have a 1987 OR18 with a Mills 3-bow Bimini (sun top?) from an OR22. It is about 8 feet long and covers most of the boat. This is great for sun protection, but too big for fishing. Ultimately, I would like to go to a T-top and a High RPS with slide out cooler seat. Right now, we are happy using what we have.

I'm sure this is Mills' busy season. But their sun top would be nice your 18, George. You'll just have to spring for the price. But you get what you pay for. You waon't find anything locally that's as nice or well made.

George,

I had a Mills Suntop on my 18 Outrage. I think its worth the extra money. Everything is top quality and it stows perfectly on the bow when not in use. I was amazed at the number of laudatory comments I would get on the top.
