An alternative to standard “Bimini” tops that limit access to gunwales, the Tele-Shade mounts to the center console allowing full walk-around and gunwale access. Telescoping anodized aluminum legs, with stainless steel locking buttons and pins permit height adjustment from 4 1/2' to 7'. The low retracted height of 4 1/2' makes Tele-Shade ideal for low-profile consoles on boats in the 16'-21' range, including skiffs and bay boats, and for storing in garages and other height restricted areas. UV-stabilized poly standoffs install as needed to match console and deck. Awning material is durable, marine-grade, coated SurLast® polyester fabric for years of service. One year warranty.
