I added a bimini years ago and on the hot sunny days, my bald head greatly
appreciates the addition.  It really is a lifesaver.

I think I bought it at Overtons and believe it was just over $ 300.00.  It
may be sacrilege, but it was probably designed for a powerboat.  I think
aesthetics are important and it looks fine when up.

When set up, it just fits under the boom.  In fact when setting up, I have
to release the main sheet and swing the boom out to unfold the bimini.
 Once up, the boom is an inch or so above the bimini.  I am 5' 10" and can
just stand under it.  If you are 6' + it may be more problematic.

I'll see if I can snap a pic for you and send it.
