    So after some sickness and then strong winds, I finally got the boat floated; and then installed my bimini too.  I went with the 54" height, and the 91"-96" width.  I do not plan to sail with it open, just use when anchored or when attached to the mooring.  So I wanted it as tall and wide as I coud get it.  I thought I would then cut down to the height I needed to clear the boom.  But I also wanted it out of the way (closed up) when sailing.  And I just made a couple of stern perch seats, and so didn't want the closed up bimini interfering with sitting in those seats.  I was messing around with location mounting to deck, but when closing it up it just wasn't ending up high enough.  Then I remembered Richard's setup (with the long strut forward, and the short struts to the aft) and his comment about how the frame actually raises up.  And so I flipped it around, and low and behold I had the clearance closed I was looking for.  Hope to use it during the week of the 4th.  Unfortunately, teal is not an exact color copy of 20 year old faided aquamarine sail covers.  Oh well.  I paid about $500 from Overtons, but I got a stainless steel frame, it was on sale, and they also had free shipping.  I gotta learn how to make the attached pics show right up in the email like Ralph!  - Ted
