Love the design and look of my '15 Prostar bimini except for the fact that's it's kind of heavy and mounts only to the windshield, which makes me nervous.
While pushing/pulling gently on the top corners of the windshield, bimini or not, the windshield frame flexes and the glass moves in the frame. I tightened the 3 screws on each pillar holding the frame to the boat, which helped. I don't expect it to be absolutely rock solid, but should I be concerned about long-term structural degradation or windshield damage from bimini use? I plan to keep this boat indefinitely and don't want to require an obsolete windshield in 8 years.
I know the top bimini mounts are known to wear through but they're easily replaceable and only cost a partial fortune. Has anyone had or heard of problems besides the top mounts pulling through?
