    U-Shaped Bimini Mounting Bracket???

    I am looking for a set of white nylon u-shaped brackets for my bimini. Fits on the windshield of a Maxum 2300SC Runabout. Any help locating would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Thanks all, I found what I need. Hostage pointed me down the right track, West River Marine has bought out a few years back, so finding the right number was a challange, but finally tracked them down. But, the part number you gave allowed me to call into Bayliner who put me in touch with a local company that had the exact replacement.

    All the best guys!!!

    If you absolutely want an identical part. Cast it yourself.

    This is a lot easier than you would think.
    And the results are excellent. (You can mold your hand and take fingerprints from the casting.)
    Casting resin is really tough stuff. A part your size would withstand a hammer!

    This looks very close to what we both have.

    You could always call Brunswick Boats (who owned Maxum) or who ever use to be a dealer for them in the area. They might have some parts laying around. I was able to get non-standard SS ladder made for the Maxum a little over a year ago, from the former dealer. Make sure to ask for: "1705898 CANVAS HINGE,PLASTIC TOP BAR,WHITE"

    source: http://www.maxumboatparts.com/2001/s...t/mc2.htm#7170

    It might cost a little more than what this guy suggested, though it will match and you know it will work.

    Edit: Looks like these guys sell it for $2.50: http://westrivermarine.awardspace.co...ts%20parts.htm

    Also you could call up a Bayliner dealer as many boats owned by Brunswick use similar parts. I think you should be all set with a few sources to follow up, good luck!

    PS - It is actually called a "convertible top", not a Bimini. This is news to me as well.

    I know what he is talking about. I have them on my annoying bimini which can turn into a camper enclosure. The bimini pole mounts to the windshield and the fabric snaps into the windshield and you attach a strap to a mount on the gunnel. I also have the slant back and the two windows. I did not care for that bimini as it acts more like a parashoot and doesn't give enough protection. I got an iboats standard bimini and love and use that all the time. Though I will see if I can find what you are looking for. If you take up what other suggest you bimini will not mount properly.

    These do a full wrap instead of completing the wrap with a pin.

    Given I am on the ocean, the Bimini takes a beating. The thing I like about the nylon mounts is they take some of the stress and the fact they wrap around the frame and are attached with a pin, there is nothing to strip. Net, I am concern about screwing the mount into the aluminum frame and hoping the extreme stress doesn't strip the mounting screws. Anyone with experience with screwing a mount to the aluminum window frame, comments appreciated. I am still looking for the straddle mounts.

    This place has a lot of stainless at good prices.

    I think the stainless rail mount would be a good alternative to the plastic piece you are using now.

    I have searched ebay, iboats, and googles the hell out of it. I think it is going to take someone who knows where to look!

    It is from a 2001 Maxum, btw.
