This is the track the bimini supports are mounted on.  The cars can move forward and aft to tighten the bimini or simply sweep the supports aft for when you take it down and we choose to cover it.

Its a nice setup.

Its a zipper around the bar,  with gathered cloth around the backstays themselves (to avoid dripping). 

The bimini is so big that my guy mounted it on tracks and cars so that the support arches could slide back when you take the canvas down and get it out of the way.   Worked out well.    I can get you a picture of that when I am down this weekend if you want.

Is that a zipper or velcro solution for the last bit beyond (around) the backstays ?

Best shot I have, sorry.    This one shows the zipper connection to the back of the dodger and to the front of the bimini.   The struts need to be adjusted in this shot, to take out the sag in the connector.  Since been done, but that's why it looks that way...

The solar panels come with a decision on a proper battery and electrical system monitoring capability.  What comes with the boat is pretty basic.   I'd be interested in what others have done here.

* I'll see if I have pictures of the connection.

Rick, id love some closeups of the two connecting if you have any?, love the sprayhood,visibility and size, looks like it goes back almost to the winches, im 63 so need both as high as possible, as close to the boom as possible.

Havent decided on the solar panels yet, but its on the list, thought of placing them infront of the sprayhood

Researching like a madman (-:

There is a zipper between the two...   The dodger and bimini are at the same height.   We really love the bimini in terms of creating both a shady space as well as protection from rain and spray.   The dodger is huge, but sized well for the boat.  It really gives you great visibility and good protection

One other consideration is that I sized the bimini to hold solar panels with good support.  I can get 4 or more solbian panels 150watt each on the bimini and use them to recharge the batteries while on extended trips.   The bimini would have pockets for the flexible panels.

Rick

* I spent a lot of time looking at pictures on the internet of other boats...   you should do the same before you decide.
