3.0 mercruiser 135HP or something like that
is it easy to replace one of these? Because I literally ripped mine. I don't need the poles they are fine but the frabric is broken and ripped.
 
Althepal, my suggestion is to take your boat to a local canvas shop and have them do it for you. That way you can pick the materials and discuss with them any modifications you want done.
great suggestion I was just planning on buying a premade bihimi cover for $40. I already paying into this lol Breaking out another thousand now lol
 
Al, you are learning one of boatings biggest lessons, and it NEVER ends.
Yes I see I have to buy new bow and stern navigational lights and I am like damn lol I was just wondering if an LED light for the stern also uses the same 2 prong connection

If all your framing is good and factory we may be able to just order and replace the Bimini fabric. Replacing the fabric top is not a particularly hard job.

If you are interested send me your info using the request form on our website at www.covemarine.com and I will contact you.

Just my humble opinion. If you can afford to have the material replaced, do it. By the time you buy the material and necessary supplies you won't save much that is even if you had a sewing machine that could handle the job..

I was planning on just getting new material with the holes already cut out :)
 
I would call them. If they made the original one. They will make a new one
 
Call them. Just Google it
 
Let Kevin help you get a top. He can either make one or order an OEM replacement from Great Lakes (they made the original top for SeaRay). You can look around and possibly buy something online from Overtons or something like that and maybe save a little money but it's not going to be the quality of the original Sunbrella top. You will be replacing it again in a few short years. Just my opinion.
 
Get the factory top. I used a universal top on my Larson and was not good
