|Can I get a Big Air Custom Bimini shipped with my tower?|
No. Even when we have measurements from a boat to build a tower, there is too much built in adjustability in the tower to make a custom bimini for it before it is installed on a boat. All Big Air Custom Biminis must be made to measurements taken directly from an installed tower.
|How is the Big Air Super Shadow different from the Big Air Custom Bimini?|
The Super Shadow is a universal bimini that is only offered in one size (76 inches square). The Big Air Custom Bimini is made specific to your tower. Both options come in a variety of colors.
|I have a factory bimini, can you tell me if my bimini will fit a tower?|
Unfortunately no, we do not have a database with bimini measurements. There are many different styles of factory biminis and almost impossible to keep track of all of them. See above question for measurements needed to determine fit.

Measuring for Installation of a Big Air Bimini Top
Bimini Top installation consists of two steps:
When you are ordering your bimini top, you will provide specific information concerning your tower.
There are 5 important dimensions that determine the proper size of the bimini top.
Those dimensions are what we call “CR”, "CF","X", "Y", and "Z". Take a moment to confirm these measurements.
“X” is the distance between the front tower tubes one foot below the top of the tower.
“Y” is the distance between the rear tower tubes one foot below the top of the tower.
"Z" is the distance between the front and rear tower tubes one foot below the top of the tower.
“CF” and “CR” are the circumference of the tower tubes, front and rear.
|Will my new tower fit around my factory bimini?|
It depends on the boat and on the bimini. Towers will fit each boat differently based on the size of the boat. Also, bimini tops are different from one boat to the next so there is no way to tell for sure. For us to determine whether or not a tower will bind your bimini, we will need four measurements from you.
Email us your name and phone number along with those four measurements and the type of tower you are interested in. We will call you and let you know if the tower will bind your bimini or not.
