Bimini Top Replacement

Post by chapman74 » Mon Jun 20, 2016 3:02 pm

I'm having the most difficult time finding a used or correct new replacement Bimini top for my 1995 220 Cobalt.
Someone stole mine and with the 7 year rule I've hit every dead end.. Please Help!!! I recently ordered one from IBoats but it was way too tall and had to return it.

I know that rnr-marine has a pretty good history of making replacement canvas and boat covers for specific boats, and greatlakesboattop.com does quite a bit as well and are well-regarded. Westland makes a lot too, but I think you have to order from a dealer rather than directly from them.

Wow. We should change big block's board rank to "Detective". Nice work.

Seriously, BB does solid work.

It goes to show that this is exactly what forums like this are for and what Cobalt owners have been missing - a community.

Just don't get me looking for a boat. You need one I'll find one. It took me 1100 posts to find my 200. Lol
I lived on cl. Ok still do.

We should go into business together!

You would not believe how long it took me to find that 190. I was on every site for the better part of a decade... I still look every day.

Not to side track this post but I just read your boat find the other day. That is truly a great find.congrats. They are out there. My 200 was a deal too. Loved that boat. Just a bit small for our group.

Thank you. I can honestly tell you my boat was basically locked in hyperbaric chamber. People are absolutely dumbfounded when i tell them it's a 2002.

The thing looks like it could be in a boat show as a "new model". It's honestly ridiculous. Been on one lake it's whole life (my own lake at that). Perfect size for my family, lake & needs.

Here's a shot of the engine (excuse the finger i didn't take it).
