I need to put a Bimini top on my 18ft Bahner jet project. I have a 9 month little girl that i don't want to be in the sun all day. Do you guys have any pics! looking for a low profile Bimini on a 18 foot jet boat that i could get ideas from. I would like to hide all the attach hardware so when it is removed for the nitrous passes you wont see big rails or attach points. Any pic'c would help not much of a Bimini top guy but Family first!! Thanks in advance!

Post a decent picture of your boat. I'd like to see where your cleats are.

Only close up I had..Sorry...hehe
Be sure to set Bimini back far enough so when bundled up and cruising, rear passengers aren't resting on it...!

Good Luck...be sure to post pic's

I was in the same boat when my daughter was born, but it is definently nice to have for the little ones. I originally wanted mine to be lower profile but it is actually nice to have some headroom to move around inside the boat when it is up. I had to run the two seperate mounting points the back one is used when bimini is down and also doubles as the rear tie strap point, I move it to the front mounts when it gets put up. I went with all the stainless hardware and mounts and it really doesnt look that bad. These are the best pics i could find.
