Bimini Top Question

I recently purchased a bimini for my 4.7 meter SIB. They're actually designed to be installed on the oarlocks but I don't have oarlocks so the manufacturer recomended I attach it to the holes in the lacing cuff with cable ties. Can anybody here think of better way to attach a bimini without having the oarlocks? I guess I could install the oarlocks but I'm trying to get around having to deflate the boat. I've always stored it inflated on a trailer.

Place a detailed pic to see what you have on upper tubes, is it something like this ?

This is a imported sib canopy, so you have a rope tie all around sib, you'll need the locking alum horizontal bars and harware right ? If canopy is brand new ask dealer for missing parts. This model does not secure to oar locks, just rope tie/tubes. See the parts you have, let me know.

Happy Sibbing

Nice, I'll see if they have the "locking alum horizontal bars and hardware but I'm doubting they do. Maybe another bimini distributer would have it. I'll check that out too. Yep my sib has the rope tie on all the way around. Where did you order yours?

They are Korean made, we distribute sibs, ribs and engines. Canopy secures better to rope tie than on oar locks. If impossible to get can send the measuremnts of missing parts along with pics to understand what you need to build/buy to place canopy. Is a must have issue for summer. Let me know if able to get missing parts.

Hmmm. Looks like an aluminum backing plate, a thumbscrew, and possibly some kind of nut on the other side (assuming the screw doesn't thread into the bimini support.)

Should be able to sort that out with a single trip to the hardware store and a bit of time with a hacksaw, drill, and file.

Yup, been there done that. I used a couple of glue on handles and a couple of deck eyes screwed to the deck and lashed the base on. Works great to 30knots so far.
