I have Hanse 505 #135 from 2017.
There are an original Hanse Bimini on delevered together with the boat in april 2017.
The Bimini are constructed so when it rains, the fabric on the roof are one big lake. I am expecting that the stainless steele pipes would colapse soon.
The problem seems to be that the rounding of the stainless steel pipes are so little so the bimini are not self draining, then the waight of the water press the fabric down so there are room for a bigger and bigger lake.
Compared with a Hanse 505 from 2014 and a Hanse 508 from 2019, its a much more flat roof.
Has other Hanse 505 in the period 2015/2016/2017/2018 same challenge?

One of your lessees may have sheeted in the main such that the center bar of the Bimini was crushed by the boom and some of its arc was straightened out. Itís possible to remove the center piece and reshape it. A good canvas shop that makes frames should be able to address this. Good luck.
