Anyone have experience installing/using a Mantis from Protecht as an alternative to a conventional Bimini top? This would be to provide shade in the cockpit for day sailing on a lake ... not for extended offshore cruising.

No, but I have used a $20 beach umbrella in the past. It worked well at anchor but because of the boom and backstay could not be used underway. It will vary from boat to boat.
