I completely understand the want to take the bimini down however on the 460 at least the way they came from the factory its not that easy. Almost everybody I know doesn't go through the trouble to take it off since you are mostly in the sun anyway. It looks as though you have some aftermarket canvas Russ so it may be easier. The 2 460's I run are a pain in the arse to take down and there is no real way to roll it up on the bars like the smaller boats. I had mine made with the notion I was taking it down all the time and this winter we are re-working the canvas on my friends boat to make it easier.
