Bimini Top - question on height.

Going to buy a stainless steel frame Bimini top.

I would like to buy one that allows me to stand up underneath it while driving.

But the Zodiac is small, a 420m YL.

The height needed is a standard 54" which would allow me to stand while driving, but I'm concerned that at that height it would look funny and perhaps be too tall, catching too much wind.

The size I'm wanting is 64" wide, 6 ft long, 54" to stand up. (The other standard size is 47" height).

I guess its function vs. looks somewhat.

I wouldn't use the Bimini all the time, it would be up and down as needed.

Any thought of anyone who has used one before?
Is scrunching down while under the shade not noticeable or a pain?

Two adults, 2 elementary age kids in the boat.
