    Does anybody know if the bimini fabric is a warranty item. I have a 2016 with a 4 year extended warranty. The boat is always under cover, and the top is taken off during the off season. Pics so the fabric fraying and separating. Suggestions?

    I'm going to guess that the bimini is not covered....but it can't hurt to ask!!! I think there is a label on it from the manufacturer....I'm going to be curious what your answer is on this one....following!

    Going to check out the label when I go up this weekend. But I also doubt it will be under warranty!

    I had an issue with mine and the company asked me to send it in for repair. I had to pay shipping but that was much cheaper than a new Bimini...

    Could not find a manufacturer name but I checked with Yamaha... they said the bimini is only covered the first 12 months! It's not bad and not noticeable unless you are anal about your boat like I am . If it actually starts to tear I guess I will look into repair or replace.
