Metal Poles to Attach Bimini to Deck Instead of Nylon Straps

mkerziemkerzie Posts: 61 Baller
I've seen quite a few boats, especially promo boats, that have metal poles attaching the Bimini to the hull instead of the black nylon straps. I've seen some really nice ones that seem to 'press in' to flush mounted receivers on the deck. Are these coming from the factory or is this through an aftermarket channel. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Companies like Taylor Made have been making stuff like that for the boat manufacturers for a long time. I’m sure there are other companies but that is the one that comes to mind and has that type of stuff in their product catalog.

    @RichardDoane thanks for sharing the Pic, I bent one of these on my Nautique & didn't know what to look up to replace it.
    Cheers

    @scotchipman Sweet looking boat. You do like red.
    Not sure I know what I am doing. The boat goes I follow. Trying to perfect the deep water start. Squirrel!

    I have these on my 200 and they are very cool. Much more modern than straps. BUT be very careful when you are connecting and disconnecting the ends into the receivers. It is very easy to slip and either scuff or scratch your gelcoat with the metal ends.
