Sew it yourself! The Bimini Skin Kit for 4-Bow Frame provides all the materials you need to sew the fabric top for a bimini. A bimini top is a great way to provide protection from the sun and shelter from the rain and spray. Our bimini skin kits are perfect for replacing the fabric top on an existing bimini frame or can be paired with one of Sailrite’s Bimini Frame Kits (sold separately) to build a new bimini from start to finish. This bimini skin kit contains all the supplies required to sew a bimini top from the Sunbrella Marine Grade fabric in the standard color of your choice to patterning material and zippers.
The Sailrite 4-Bow Bimini Skin Kit features zippered tubing sleeves for easy removal and storage. Tails at the forward and aft edges act as attachment points and to prevent water from wicking back under the cover. Facing along the sides keep the cover from stretching and webbing straps offer additional support to the bimini. Add window material or extra zippers to this kit to make optional curtains, bridge panel attachments, backstay slits, or windows.
This bimini kit will fit on a frame with a maximum width of 106 inches and a maximum fore & aft spread of 126 inches.
