Hi, 
I'm considering to add a Bimini with enclosure. Anyone whom has recommendations on what design to go for?

So we have a Hanse 455-
We did put on an after market dodger. 
Initially we used a "FLY" which attached to the dodger, and then we would hang off the back stays. These pictures show the "FLY". We only used this at anchor, or on a mooring, and it works very well. However, the way that the middle of the Fly was kept up involved tying it to the end of the boom, so not good under sail. 




We upgraded to a bimini and "jumper" arrangement this summer. I have included some pictures to show How it looks on the boat now. 

We had the Bimini made with some clear windows which could be uncovered, so we could view the sail trim while sailing. 

Only down side was that it could be awkward looking at the main sail while hoisting the sail. 



Best of luck, and let me know if you have any questions. 
I had to use pretty low resolution pictures to post on this site. 
When in doubt go sailing
