QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Do you sell a double Bimini?
No. But you can place two of the Heavy Duty Pontoon Boat Tops together as long as you have the available space that will work for you.
I have a 20ft. smokercraft 'sunsport', what size bimini top would I need?
Since our products are not Pontoon Boat specific, we require measurements that we can compare so we can find you the best fitting Pontoon BiminI Boat Top.
What is the height of the open canopy from the mounting bracker to the top of canopy
The height of the Heavy Duty Pontoon Boat Top depends on the heighth of you railing. Thr standard is 74" in height.
can this top be used on the front of a 21' 2005 Suntracker party barge?
As long as you have the available space from the measurements we put online for our Heavy Duty Pontoon Boat Top, you should be just fine. We recommend measuring to make sure it will fit your boat.
Does this top fold down flat, easily? I would have to fold down every time to get under my canopy on the lift? Do you have pictures of it folded down. can you send me the mounting instructions. Is it as wide on top as the bottom so when folded down it will set on the siderails of the pontoon. The one I have now is narrower so it set on the seat backs. The pontoon I have is 8 ft. wide.
This Heavy Duty Pontoon Boat Top does lay down flat. It will sit approximately, 6" above the rail since the frame will sit inside the mounting bracket. We use push pins to keep it in place and are very easy to take in and out.
Can this be installed on the forward section of boat with an existing canopy already on back section of boat?
As long as you have the appropriate space to install the Heavy Duty Pontoon Boat Top, you should be fine. I would make sure it will not interfere with the doors.

What length is needed of boat side rails for 8x8. Bimini?
You will need a minimum of 68" on each side on your pontoon boat to mount this pontoon bimini top.
Will the mounting hardware work on 1" square tube deck rails, or 1 1/4" only?
This pontoon frame will not work perfectly with 1' tube but with a little light modification you should be able to make it work. There will simply be a little extra room at each rail mount on your pontoon boat.
The frame on my pontoon boat is 100" from outside to outside where the current top is installed. Will this top work on my boat, and if not, do you have one that will fit a 100" frame.
This pontoon bimini top will not work for you. You will need a pontoon bimini top for an 8 1/2 boat. I have included a link to our pontoon top below.
