Product Description

The Make Your Own Bimini DVD comprises of step-by-step video and written PDF sewing and frame assembly instructions (on disc) to help make building a bimini easy and affordable.

A bimini can provide excellent shade or shelter when under sail or at the dock without creating that "closed in" feeling. Sailrite's bimini design features zippered tubing sleeves for easy removal and storage, tails at the forward and aft edges to act as attachment points and to prevent water from wicking back under the cover, and facing along the sides to keep the cover from stretching.Your completed bimini will not only rival a finished bimini from any canvas shop, but it will be much more affordable!

Make Your Own Bimini DVD is extremely comprehensive including frame construction, patterning and sewing the bimini cover, and support strap construction as well as optional add-on instructions for any 2-bow bimini, 3-bow bimini, or 4-bow bimini. Detailed written PDF instructions are also included on every DVD.

This DVD is included with all Sailrite Bimini Complete Kits and Skin Only Kits.
