  • New Bimini Cover


    John E Travland
    • Year: 2007 Brand: Mastercraft Model / Trim: X2 Cost: $0-$249 DIY or Professional Install: I installed it

    New bimini cover with heat-pressed logo...next is the bimini itself. Used Sunbrella premium material. 

    Project went pretty smooth by using the old material add a pattern. I was not able to salvage the old zipper but for $6 on Amazon, it was a cheap replacement. Had to buy a 1" binder attachment for the binding. I originally purchased a 3/4" binder but it was a bit small and made it difficult to catch the edge of the material consistently. Attachment and all materials were purchased from Sailrite. Like the upholstery, you'll need an industrial sewing machine. I picked up a nice Juki for under $400 and have redone 2 boats now with it.
