Just right!
by Alex from Enterprise, Alabama on June 18, 2014
Bought these knowing that they would be too long for my purpose. They where very easy to cut, re drill, and rivet to the size I needed. Made by Carver industries. Same manufacturer as my bimini top.

a great addition...
by Tyler from Rockford, Illinois on July 09, 2013
I'm glad I purchased this brace kit along with the bimini top. It was very easy to cut to the length I needed and gives great support to the bimini frame. If you're buying a Carver bimini, spring for the brace kit too. You won't be sorry.

American Made
by Kevin from Owatonna, Minnesota on August 12, 2012
Very happy with this bimini top. It was easy to install. American made products will help bring this country back. I could have purchased a cheaper one but not made in America. I had to cut the brace poles to shorten them for our boat and re-rivet the bracket. Easy to do when you have a rivet gun. Put the main brackets on the top side of the window frame. I can stand up in this and keep cool and dry. Extends just 4 inches past the windshield so the rain will drip onto the windshield. Installed on a 1995 Bayliner 1704 Carpri SF with a 120 hp Merc outboard. Kevin Candi Owatonna, Minnesota. USA

Good Product
by Kristan from Southlake, Texas on June 19, 2012
Good product, connects as advertised. Ordered the stainless fitting upgrade with the bimini and the brace kit at the same time. The brace kit didn't come with the stainless fittings (thought it would have, otherwise an option would have been presented), and had to be purchased separately so that the appearance was consistent.

Before I purchase can some one tell me
by Arthur from Mayetta, New Jersey on July 08, 2012
I purchased a Taylormade product,it didn't bolt right up,you had to be able to slide the bracket through the main hoop(aluminum arch),which meant you had to drill out the plastic bottom mount rivet on the ends of the pole to get them through. Do I have to do the same with this product or is this a an open end mount that I can wrap around and then bolt or screw tight on the main hoop?

22"-44" Adjustable Brace Kit
by David from Montgomery, Texas on July 19, 2011
About a month ago i bought a real nice Bimini Top from you guys . It works really get even in the rain. When i needed to fold it down it would lay on the back of the boat and the splash would come up from the sides. So i purchased the adjustable brace and the top is out of the splash. IT WORKS GREAT. Thanks , David Malek.

Bimini bust
by David from Dickinson, Texas on May 26, 2014
The 48" kit stood 59" tall and had to be cut down to fit. Frames are weak because they are rivited together at the bends to facilitate cheap shipping. Worst of all, the canvas did not fit the bows at all and had to be altered by a local canvas shop. Very poor product. Sold under the name of EnduraCover but was actually Carver brand......

Mildly disappointed
by Glenn from North Port, Florida on July 24, 2012
The bimini top was delivered on time and in good condition. However, the website that I ordered from (iboats.com) states that there will be "step-by-step" instructions included. There were no instructions included what-so-ever. I called the 1-800 #, and was advised to call the manufacturer (Carver)because they only sell the product, not service it. After some discussion I was emailed the instructions from iboats.com. The instructions were clear, except that it listed #8 1/2" screws to join the stainless poles together. There was a rivet tool included with my order - without rivets or instructions. A trip to Lowes to buy rivets and a quick instruction from the salesman was a life saver. I did have everything together in about an hour and set it up on the boat which took about 30 minutes. It looks nice. The width is perfect, the height is perfect, but the six foot bimini is only 5 1/2 foot instead of six - which puts the seat forward of the center console in the drip line or in the sun. Overall - I will not be a return customer. Get your bimini from someone local if at all possible. The internet is such a risk. For $818 I feel iboats came up short.

Measure Carefully Before You Order
by Gordon from Mobile, Alabama on September 19, 2011
Unlike the aluminum bar, the stainless steel brace bars are not easily modified. Carver recommends moving the mounting hardware aft to obtain the proper fit. In my case the boat is simply not long enough and I had to buy a tubing cutter and drill out the rivets to fit the brace. If you are not comfortable with cutting and drilling stainless steel, then assess the dimensions of your boat carefully before you place your order.

Excellent brace kit
by Richard from Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina on August 19, 2014
I considered several brace kits before ordering the ENDURATop kit. It has proven to be an excellent addition to my 1996 Aquasport 225 Explorer bimini. The kit has made a relatively flimsy bimini substantial. Would definitely buy again, and definitely recommend to anyone in search of a brace kit. Quality product, best price in the market. Complete and easy to install.

Nice Top - Easy to Install
by Jonathan from Columbia, South Carolina on August 08, 2013
The top was just as ordered. It's very nice especially with the stainless steel hardware. This was easy to assemble and I had it ready to go on the boat in about 30 minutes by myself. Install on the boat took 15 minutes with another person. There was no bending or forcing to get it on the boat and I couldn't be happier with the quality and look. I would definitely recommend these tops to anyone looking for one.

by Kelli from David City, Nebraska on August 06, 2012
They rivet the bottom eye on the rod. If you cut it shorter you have to drill out the rivet and put a screw in it. A good set screw would have been better. Overall it works good

Bimini
by Jeffrey from Memphis, Tennessee on July 21, 2012
Cheap, flimsy, cheaply made. The best thing about top is fabric. The structure of frame too thin(steel bars) and flaps around in the wind. VERY DISAPPOINTED, SQUARE TUBES on the frame is the only way to build this.
