Carver Industries' instructions: To select a bimini top for your boat you will need to know the length, height and width of top your boat requires.

Bimini Tops-How to Measure

First determine what portion of your boat you want the top to cover. The tops come in 5', 5'6, 6', 8' and 9' lengths.

Next, determine where you want the top mounted. Measure the width between these two points to determine the width of your top. The top comes standard with 90 degree deck hinges for mounting on flat surfaces. However, optional mounts are available for other applications.

Then, stand inside your boat and measure the distance in height from the mounting points to the height you desire. This will help you determine how high your bimini top needs to be.
