Bimini boat tops are an awesome way to protect yourself, your family, and your watercraft from the sun and weather in Salt Lake City this summer out on the water. Marine stores aren’t the only ones who sell these covers. Tarp and awning companies sometimes specialize in bimini tops as well. Here is some more information about these types of covers and what to look for when buying one:

The right bimini tops made in Salt Lake City help prevent the fabric from fraying and to be weatherproof. They block the sun from beating down on you and your equipment. This will preserve your boat and everything within it longer than if it just bakes in the sun all summer long. Bimini tops also will prevent rain and water spray from getting to you. They act as a sort of shelter so you can enjoy playing on the water for longer periods of time. The material is made out of sun-resistant material and the fabric should hold up well in wind. Obviously being mostly waterproof is important so you can stay dry while under its cover.

There are a couple of different types of bimini tops available from Salt Lake City companies. There are covers specifically for pontoons. These covers are typically bigger than your wakeboarding boats and are used for shading and protecting more people. There are tower tops where the cover is connected to a boat’s tower, specifically on ski or wakeboard watercraft. This is a great option so you only need to have one piece of equipment attached to your boat, instead of both a tower and the shade. When you get one specifically for a tower, it is custom fit to the tower so it provides ample shade and protection without getting in the way. And there is just the typical bimini which works on boats that don’t have towers and still want what the covers have to offer.

When you find the right company in Salt Lake City, they will offer customizable options to choose the best fit for your boat and your needs. You can choose the color, mounting position, and if you want aluminum or stainless steel tubing. You can also choose the size of cover for what you had in mind. Choosing the right bimini top for your boat will allow you to enjoy being on the water more than ever before.
