I have a Hunter 34 and have long wished for a Bimini to give me some shade from the sun in the summer. A few of you have kindly shared your ideas but I haven't seen a conventional one that is high enough for me to stand up straight at the wheel (I'm 6'3") without looking awkward. The other day I saw a boat with a cockpit shade that didn't have a metal frame screwed to the boat but instead was a free-floating frame that was suspended with lines running from the back-stay(s) above. It was then secured with more lines pulling downward and secured to the hull. I have never seen anything like this before and it looked perfect for my boat. Has anyone seen this? Any ideas on where I could source one or take a closer look? Thanks in advance...
