    I can only imagine Dave! I bet that's one frog that thinks he's a prince in disguise LOL!
    Next time you guys get together to work on boats I hope I get an invite. I'll buy the beer just for the entertainment!

    I love this picture! It hangs above my desk at work. Back when I was teaching people how to fly I drilled that Concept in their head when it came to dealing with emergency situations. One of my students brought that picture to me. It was the first time I'd ever seen it.

    Update: I checked around with local Bimini/Canvas providers in Ontario and got a couple of quotes. I eventually ordered from AmeriSeam. Local provider #1 said the price would be double AmeriSeam price (including USD/CAD conversion, taxes, shipping etc), with a delivery of 12 weeks. Local provider #2 said the price would be 3 times the price with 10 weeks delivery! AmeriSeam delivered within 2 weeks!

    We installed the Bimini on the weekend and are ecstatic about the quality, look and finish! An amazing addition to our boat! I would strongly recommend them to anyone looking for a Bimini add-on!

    I couldn't imagine not having a bimini on a cruiser down here!

    You can rely on my friend, Jim Larsen who owns Ameriseam. Great choice. Is that the four footer or six foot bimini? They work as I was the second clown designing it.

    Do you have a pic of your bimini up? I'm assuming that is 6 feet clearance from the cockpit floor, correct?

    There is also a 6 foot length bimini you can put there and sail with it deployed. You would have to move the boom bail forward some which did not hurt the sailing characteristics. As to height, it sometimes depends on the sail if it droops down as it is old.

    Arctic,

    Nice bimini.

    Where did you get the nifty flag stanchion on the back of your 260? Thanks.
