That umbrella seems to work very well. Can you still case under it?

Thanks for the page 198 direction Capeman. I should have remembered that and gone back to find it on my own. I'm thinking that fit may work on my LB22. Don't much want a Bimini top on her, but the umbrella top could be stashed out of the way in the cabin. You're the man.

I bought a bimini but gave it to another builder here. Can't work a big fish around the boat easily. T top won't fit in some creeks I fish. The umbrella does the trick and yes you can cast around it.

IMO, too often on open boats smaller than around the mid 20 foot mark, a bimini is functionally and aesthetically awkward.

Underway, nothing beats a broad-rimmed-chin-strapped hat. At anchor, an adjustable umbrella is superior.
