Bimini Top for 21RF

Recommended Posts

Looking into a bimini to use on scalloping weekends or sandbar days for the family. Does anyone have any recommendations on mounting locations or issues? I saw one on a newer RF for sale on CL, but the pics didn't help much.  Thanks

I like mounting the hardware on the gunnels. That gives you more walking room between the console and the aluminum frame. Also, look at "Accon" bimini top quick connect hardware. This mounting hardware makes it so easy to deploy, move or remove the top by yourself. The frame just snaps in or releases very quickly. Also consider a second or third set of quick connect hardware so you can lay the top down across the bow or rear deck. 

Send us some pics of the install.

I had a Bimini top installed on my 21’ Master Angler. I am very happy with the installation. I will take some photos in the next few days and post them.

When I got my boat it came with a bimini, I've only had it on a few times. Mine has the mount for the base about even with the console inside the gunnel at the top with the straps on top of the gunnel.This provides shade over the whole cockpit and allows the top to fold down inside the cockpit.  It is nice to have it fold down and out of the way when not in use.  The major downside for me is that I stand up while driving most of the time and it is too short for me stand under.

Inside gunnel mount is good. Does not take up gunnel space or need for stepping over it. Have it high enough so you can stand up while running. Have it long enough to over hang the back of the leaning post and the front cooler/seat in front of the console. Same as a t top would, jmo fin
