we have a tower on our s200 and i would like to add a bimini top to it, is this possible? actually the first couple of times out we noticed problems with the fasteners of the tower working themselves loose, i actully almost lost one of the quick release upright nuts. when the dealer installed it, it did not seem very sturdy. anyone who feels the same way must do the following-- remove the quick release bolts and replace them with high quality stainless steel bolts with most likley a nine-sixteenth head, so they can be properly tightened. now, i am unaware if they left some washers off of the four lower mounting points of the tower, but when you grasp the bar and it has some horizontal play, even a fraction of an inch, this is magnified tenfold by the time it reaches the top of the tower. i had to add special washers to make sure that the pivot eye on the mounting point was absolutely tight, but make sure that the tower is still free to move. also make sure to use anti-seize on all ext. fasteners exposed to the elements. well thats enough of my rambling, for today.
