Bimini with 4 large solar panels for Oyster 625

New bimini designed and manufactured for Oyster 625, supporting 4 solar panels GoFlex GFS-135w

The challenge on this job was to replace the old bimini using the frames already existing. It was important to design a bimini that could withstand the extra weight of the solar panels.  To achieve this, we’ve integrated 4 fiberglass battens fitted inside custom made external pockets going from bow to stern, and extra two stainless steel struts.

The solar panels are secured with zips and Velcro flap to the bimini and the cables are inserted into custom made pockets, for a very neat and tidy result.

The owner was satisfied : ‘OceanCovers, Beryn and Gaby made a fantastic job. Not only the new cushions are best, but the main thing is the new bimini with the solar panels on top. It is sitting perfect. I am very happy that I gave Beryn the job, my very first feeling at our initial meeting was the right one. He convinced with his work’. Wolf from RED CAT, Oyster 625, Newport NSW March 2018
