I’ve got a video of mine doing 38 mph, and Bimini is fine. I’ve done that a number of times.
Yessir. Many here have stated the same or similar so I'm confident it can be done. I just have to figure out why mine's refusing to cooperate. There's a glitch somewhere in it no doubt. I'm just hoping to track it down and get it fixed sooner rather than later so my passengers and I can be literally cool from the shade while we're out on a cool boat.
Thanks to everyone for your responses.
I am in process of adding a front bimini to my 2013 22SLX tritoon. The dealer ordered the front frame and all mounting hardware. I will then have a local boat upholsterer build new tops. In the hardware package is a pair of pins on cable lanyards (long 3/16" diameter pin with spring loaded ball near end) that apparently pin the legs so they can't come loose as you are experiencing. I bet the legs just pop off of hardware from wind and bounce and need these pins to block their ability to pop off bracket pins.
Im wondering if you have “to much tension”. I only have to pull on mine about 1-1/2” or less to lock in. Now I’m on hp restricted lake so I don’t do near your speed, but I wonder if there’s so much “pull” on the arms that it pulls them off the attachment???
Being the front bimini is mounted reverse to standard rear bimini, it has wind pushing at it trying to unlatch it. That is why lock pins are needed apparently. The part is #012280 pin and lanyard and costs $13.35 each. You need one on each side of forward leg inserted into a drilled hole.
My 2019 RSB Bimini has a sticker that says max speed for the Bimini is 30 mph.
Is that the front or rear bimini?
I have that sticker on both front and rear bimini’s on my 2019 22Sssrxp
I only have one Bimini top.
