OK, I am probably opening myself up to ridicule, so I bow my head in shame, right off the hop. Anyway, I want a bimini on my O'Day 25. However, the boom extends quite a ways into the cockpit. Now I have seen pics of the boom being over the bimini, but it seems to me that would really restrict head clearance and the ability to sail. So, is the idea to retract the bimini when under way? Just using it for sunshade at anchor or dock? First sail yesterday after craning in, so maybe I have sunstroke.
