Fried brains

Has anyone fitted a Bimini top to a circa. 7m. RIB. Temp. this @ 6am. was 91F. and at 4pm 115F. Shade has got to be part of the plan. Any tips ideas would be welcome. Have researched all the available Biminis but can find anything relating to fitting them to a RIB .
Regards, T.

you should be able to find something on some of the stores that sell here. All you need id the pads for the poles to attach to. I saw them on a sight called " Inflatable boats of the florida keys", Google it and you should find it

Can't remember your boat. If you have a center-console type layout, have you thought about a T-Top?

Thanks, I aleady have many hats. Has not rained for 3 months and when it does I am going outside to stand in it. Need something bigger. Yes, boat is a center console but I do not like the look of T tops and they are VERY expensive. Think I will go with a bimini mounted on the tubes, but need to find a good quality one, not one of the flimsy rags that are available for a few hundred bucks.
T.
