I just looked through all our pictures and don't have any. It is funny that we don't have any pictures like that, since we have it up quite a bit of the time. If you do not have any by the weekend, I will take some for you.

That is AWESOME, Thanks!!

Couple of questions for you please:

1) do you have to angle the tower speakers like that everytime the top is stored?
2) How tall is the lettering for the boat name??

Thanks very much!! :)

I do have to angle my speakers untill I deploy the bimini and angle them back when done. It also has a push button pin to extend and retract the tubing for storage on the forward end. The previous owner had bent the light tubing so I replaced with a thicker I.D. wall. I'm sure the bends were due to this crappy design of the system. I don't remember the size of the letters but I'll check when I get a chance, they came from Overtons.

I was able to have the bimini deployed or stored without moving the Wetsounds 485 speakers. Mine also did not have any straps just poles. I could put mine up or down by myself if needed, but 2 people it was a lot easier. Here is a link showing it rolled up and stored.

I'd love to see pictures up close and out, It's looks like the same tower and set-up. It's hard to tell how much the previous owner messed with the pivot points and angles butthe marks on the tubing say's alot. Mine is a *_itch to put up and store so currently I leave it up for the 8 mile trip to the water because of the pain. I also have to use the straps to hold it in place for transport. Looking at your's make me want to go out and mess with it some more today!

If you only have to go 8 miles, just take it slow and don't go over 45. It'll only take a minute longer to get there and save you lots of hassle on the set-up or tear-down. :02:

Heu hubdawg - is that a 4-blade prop? Which one do you have on your boat and do you like it better than the 3-blade?

hubdawg

It's a four blade but it came on the boat like the bimini so I don't have any reference as far as performance.

crash - you don't happen to have a shot of the top deployed do you? I think I have the same top, but cannot figure out how to install it...

sorry i didnt see your post i will take some better photos of it for you.
the speakers are mb quartz im not sure about the cans really sorry. but that being said they do push into the bimini a bit and have rubbed a whole through the canvas. it was that way when i bought the boat i think if i just move them out about an inch they will not rub but the tear was alreay there so i just leave them it still goes up in down in less that a minute without much trouble and covers the whole seating area in the back. this winter i am going to move speakers out and have the canvas replaced. the board racks are the factory ones thats about all i know about them besides the rubbers are going bad and i need to update the racks.

Thanks for all the pictures. Unfortunately they are all a bit different than the top that I ordered and received. Of course there were no install directions for the top that I got. Have to call the company and see if there are any directions that I can get my hands on.
