  1. I bought a Bimini for my 2004 Malibu VLX from Bakes and wanted to share the install because I had to tweak the supports to get it to fit right. During the initial install I couldn’t get the rear legs to lock in and the rear pole was in the way of the tower pylon. I stupidly hung from the Bimini to try and get it to reach... thankfully I didn’t break anything. Here’s why I want to share. I ended up shortening the front support poles to get it to fit. I took some measurements and thought I would need to cut off just short of an inch of each of the front supports. Knowing that there was no turning back, I started with a quarter of an inch to see what would happen. Turns out that was all I needed and it fits perfect now. As far as process, I removed the plastic caps in the ends of the tubes I used a pipe cutter to shorten them. Simple project, but would have seen awful if I cut it too short and hopefully this will help someone avoid the problem like I did. Photos show the tubes I ended up adjusting and a snap shot of the instructions for the install.
  2. I wanted to add to the community and thought I should start with something simple. I’m firm believer in “a place for every thing and every thing in its place” came up with a hanging system for ropes under the sun pad. It is small stainless mounting hardware, tiny caribeaners and electrical cord wraps. it doesn’t seem like it’s a huge pain with the ballast bags below. I’d get a larger Velcro wrap if I did it again, the size I picked doesn’t let me wrap the handle on all of my ropes except for my surf rope (pictured) Hulless 1.8 x 0.6 Inch 304... Sorry!
