Hi Pedro,
I would jump on that if it were marine related, but I am so focused on keeping this about marine canvas.
If you noticed you won't even find Google ads on this site.
I want to keep that feel for my boaters.
Thanks for asking about it and sorry to dissapoint you.
I will however post the comment and browers will see the link.
Have you thought about holloween costumes for boats?
Now that would be cool. Let me know if you come up with something like that and I would definatly love to advertise something like that.
Best Regards

Adjustable extenders
by: Chris Reiss

Last comment was incomplete. Sorry. Remove/ignore.

Tammy, thanks for your solutions (1" to 3",) but I don't think they will be higher enough for me and my hat!

The extenders I'd seen before are Bimini Butlers (www.bimini-butlers.com or www.go-ab.com/products.php?product=Bimini-Butler-Top-Height). They are adjustable up to 17", but look a bit ugly, and I don't know whether they're strong enough or lie flat enough for when the Bimini is taken down and one is trailering the boat at 60 mph.

Does any-one know or know of the "Bimini Butler"?

Chris

Found another option
by: Chris Reiss

Tammy, thanks for advice and recommendations,but I don't think 1" to 3" inches will do it esp. if I'm wearing a hat. I eventually found the extenders I saw before; they are called "Bimini Butlers", adjustable to 17". See www.bimini-butler.com, or www.go-ab.com/products.php?product=Bimini-Butler-Top-Height...

They look a little ugly ((construction set-ish) to me, and I don't know whether they lie flat on the gunwales for running at high speeds or when trailering.

Has any-one used them? Had any knowledge of them?

Chris

Chris, they can only be used while at anchor, they aren't meant to be used under weigh at all.

Testimonials

Fantastic Results

"I wanted to thank you for the fantastic results I have with the EZ-Xtend zipper solution you provided for my Sea Ray.

The isinglass had shrunk to the point that installing it was an all-morning job, with some snaps totally unusable due to the material shrinkage. I really was preparing to purchase a complete new canvas set, but hated to spend the money-especially since the canvas is still in excellent shape.

The EZ-Xtend zippers have made the canvas/isinglass installation and removal about a 10 minute job! (and looks great too!) Thanks again for the quick solution and the reasonable cost, I really do appreciate it.

The Bottom Line

The extend zippers have been a resounding success. Zippers were needed for the starboard stern section of my bimini top, and for both side curtains of my camper canvas. It is a clever design you came up with to increase the width of connectivity between my bimini top and camper canvas sections. I do not know what I would have done otherwise as the camper canvas sections have shown shrinkage over time.

Such a Great Idea

I got a chance to install these yesterday and just thought I'd get back to you to let you know that they worked perfectly for me. I couldn't be happier with that simple to install solution to my problem now allowing me to properly and fully enclose my cockpit again. Such a great idea.

Easy to Install

The Ez-xtend zippers were very easy to install---especially with a little lubricant ( which I always apply periodically to zippers)

Rare Traits

"True skill and craftsmanship are rare traits in today's society. When they're held by a person that truly cares about her customers, brings honesty, creativity and passion to her work, you have just described Tammy Hampton. Better known as "The Cover Girl," Tammy has been both a friend, mentor and business partner for nearly twenty years.

I found Tammy by her name tag.... sewn to a sailboat cover, in a nearby marina. The boat cover was fitted with such precision, it clearly stood out from the others. In the years since, Tammy has 'dressed out' at least twenty boats for me. She has yet to meet a challenge for which she could not find a creative and effective solution.

Tammy has become a valuable resource to my Boatbutler business, and she has actually created sort of a "cult" following among my customers. Once they see the quality of her work, the choice is an easy one.

I am still grateful for that little tag on that sailboat cover I found nearly twenty years ago."

You Made Everything Easy

We just installed the zipper we received on our sea ray boat canvas- what an incredibly easy experience!  It makes snapping the canvas so much easier with the zipper extension.  Thanks for the crimper & tape - you made everything easy.  We just ordered 5 more longer ones to completely update our canvas.  Thank you so much for your quick response on our first order.
