    I replaced my tan Bimini top with a black sunbrella top!
    I think it matches boat much better

    Looks great. Did you have a local shop custom make this or does Yamaha sell a Sunbrella black replacement?

    Well hell - how about the cover? My supports are rubbing holes in the far sides of it.
    how much did it run you BTW - cheaper than a new OEM top? (getting a reference for future needs)

    @Bennie I paid $150 for the boot and $350 for the top
    So $500 for both.

    @Benny Sibbitt do you know if your guy can make more using the template he has already made? Or would he require my top in order to make one? Also, have you tested it out yet? Curious how well it will hold up. My top ripped on the side where it was stitched together and I had to send it back to the manufacturer for repair.

    Yeah, looks great. I was thinking about scrubbing my tan one down when I open the boat this week. I was thinking of changing the color out too to match my boat better...a dark grey to match my camping tent cover. We'll see how the tan top looks when I scrub her down.

    Hey All, I believe the 2016 AR240 canvas will work on the 2015 242 LS if you want to change colors. The bimini awning supports are the same part numbers. I'm going to order one now and try it out...

    I'd love a black one, I have no idea why they didn't put black tops on the black boats.
