Ocean Covers measures and designs its own frames for both Bimini and dodgers, which are then taken to a stainless steel fabricator. After many years of designing and measuring frames ocean covers has built a very unique relationship with one of Sydney harbour leading stainless steel fabricators.
Whatever dimensions the frames end up being will be what your dodger or Bimini will look like. Once frames have been bent and rolled its time consuming and expensive to alter these frames.
If measuring and designing your own frames try to use angles, camber and proportions of the yacht to give you guide lines to the dimensions of the frames, this way you will be on right track in achieving an aesthetically pleasing design.
