the Futura I had came with two bimini tops . They had rubber sucker type pads that just rested on the tubes and 2 simple fore and aft webbing guy lines that clipped to a rope or handhold .
I kept the new one but I don't expect I will ever need it as my new boat has one allready .if you want to try it out you are welcome
Its quite secure when its up and folds up neatly. Obviously you would take it down if you were motoring in a rough sea .

no details on that one. strangely enough i just found a very similar top (black as well) used in longview for my c5 rib project. i'll take a picture of it next time i'm at the coast. i know it was made for a zodiac. it has the standard snap/toggle thingy attatchments like on a hard boat. i guess i'll glue on a strip with the male toggles attatched to that.

it will look very similar to that c3 pictured when done except it has more clear plastic for the windows, not that odd porthole window on the side. plus mine will finally be a rib instead of a sib

nwrib,

i agree, that layout it pretty sweet. that's why i saved the picture. i don't do much long distance rough stuff so a bench setup is better for me.

that price on the a-frame seem ok. shipping will kill you i bet though.

as far as fighting big sturgeon, just stand on the seat and fight the fish over the a-frame! maybe.

plus you can hang the keepers from the a-frame and just let them swing like stinky, drippy trophies!

Yeah, I guess I could hang the fish from the A-frame. Sturgeon wouldn't be on they only thing hanging.

Maybe you're right. I do love the look of the frame.

Ian,

That's o.k., I would pay for shipping... why should we let that little pond get in the way?

Iam pretty sure its made by Plastimo .

Just google it and they do a range of sizes with different fixings inc the rubber feet that mine has .
They are about 100 so never worth the postage . If you cant find any info Ill take some pics for you , but its a really simple pram type top with azip cover for when its folded . More of a sun top really , but the one on my new boat keeps the rain off ok unless its coming down sideways
