I'm thinking about adding a bimini top to my 17' v-hull runabout I/0. I am 6'2" tall and I Ideally I would like one which I can stand up under but also be able to have the top up when cruising @ 30 mph. My gunwales are about 27" high where I would be mounting the top, so the top would then need to be 47-48" tall. Am I asking too much? I see a lot of boats cruising faster than I can go with their tops up, but I don't know how tall they are.
