Can anyone suggest a good source for a quality bimini top for my 1976 15' Sport restoration project?

There is an article on this in the reference section I have not read it in a while but I think Jim went with a Taylor Made (no relation to me) rather than the high end Mills.

Taylor...thanks very much for the info on the top. It's just what I was needing. So now it's off to my local West Marine with credit card in tow!

Be sure to get the longest sliding tracks you can reasonably afford. They make the bimini top SO much more versatile when you can slide it forward to counteract the moving sun. If I only went out at noon, I could do without tracks. Otherwise, they're worth the investment.

I have had several bimini tops on several different boats and the Mills Bimini on my 15' Stripper is the best quality soft-top I've ever seen. The fit and finish are top notch. I don't know how much a replacement would cost but if anythning happened to my Mills top I would replace it exactly as it is now. Quality is remembered long after price is forgotten.

After reading JimH's article fooling around with the Taylor made top, the pre-designed and perfectly fitted Mills sun top would seem like a bargain, if one's time is worth anything!

Jim, am I correct in assuming that at the time you did that installation, you were not familiar with Mills' quality and fit?
