      I needed to repair a Bimini and West Marine was the only place who could get this to a store. When I picked it up the guys helped me get it on the truck. Another good visit to WM

            Comments about Rail Tubing:

            bought this tubing to make a additional bow over the cockpit and to form a frame for solar panels. The tubing kinked when the machine shop tried to bend it to the correct shape.
            as this was the only 1" ss tubing shown in the catalog and the description matched my needs, I thought it would work. Wrong.

                  Formed the product into a bow railing using standard conduit bender and and associated T's and elbows. Much stronger than I anticiapted. Product easily bends to accute angles without collapse.

                  Bimini Main beams

                  Comments about Rail Tubing:

                  I backed my boat under an overhang and bent/broke my main bow of my bimini top. Did not need a whole new top just the bows. Found the aluminum tubes at West Marine. Kind of expensive for the tube but cheaper then a new top.
