Choosing between a T-top and a Bimini top can be confusing, and we get asked about it all the time by readers and viewers. So, how do you know which one to pick? Check out this short video with Senior Editor Lenny Rudow, and we’ll bring out the important points you need to consider.


Of course, there are many more decisions you’ll have to make when you’re choosing a new boat. If the boat’s powered by an outboard, will you get a two-stroke, or a four-stroke? If it’s a stern-drive, how will you decide between MerCruiser and Volvo-Penta? And besides, which type of boat is right for you in the first place? Truth be told, choosing the perfect boat is anything but easy. Hopefully, however, now that you’ve seen this video, choosing between a T-top and a Bimini just got a lot easier.
