A bimini top is standard on the F series models. This
style is a “freestanding” top and supported only by the
bow assembly. Refer to Figures O-1 & O-2.
The weather cover is water repellant but not water

compound can be applied. Keep objects from contact-

point of contact.

(depending on the model) to the strap eyes or
deck mounts located on the deck respectively.
Attach the brace rods to the stern deck mounts.
Weather covers must be installed taut or will be
damaged by accumulation of rain water.
Bimini Main Bow
Periodically check weather covers for accumu-
lation of water. Damage to the bow assemblies
may otherwise result. Make sure cover is taut

boot (if supplied) and secured.
NEVER fold or store a wet weather cover. This
can lead to mildew or shrinkage. Roll rather
than fold the enclosure curtains. Sharp folds
increase the chance of cracking the clear vinyl.
