My winter project was to build a bimini for our boat. The sun can really be harsh on the Pamlico sound in summer and a bimini will be a welcome addition.
My son Jason and I traveled to St. Augustine Florida last year to buy some salvage bows.
I bought a couple of books on canvas work and supplies from Sailrite. The fabric was purchased on ebay, and the hardware was from Bosun Supplies. The picture is of the finished product in the basement workshop. More pictures ... Bimini Project
