Modifying the bimini

Published date: July 24, 2023
  • Boat Type: Lake Wabamun, Alberta, Canada, MacGregor 26X, Boat Type

I don't know where the previous owner found this bimini
I've never seen one this tall on another 26X.
Any suggestions for how to shorten, and tighten up this thing?
Added picture of an actual mod, that I like, the adjustable back stay.

Model Year: 1995
