Looked through passed threads, (Jim, thanks for the great piece on your top). Overtons lists bimini widths at 61 to 66 inches for a 3 bow (the smallest size). My measurement is slightly less then 61. Does anyone have any imput or has info that would make my purchase and installation easier. I have a 1967, 13.

I purchased mine from Ameri-Cover and I couldn't be happier with it. They send out a "Cool-Kit" I think they call it which includes parts to mount it on any surface you want. I installed mine on top of the gunwale and used the shims in the cool-kit, works perfectly. There is enough spring in the unit that you wont have any problems. Mine lays flat on top of the gunwale folded either to the front or back.
I got the blue Sunbrella with a boot and I love it.
