It seems like someone out there would make some type of attachment for your bimini top that would enclose you, or at least half way keep you out of the wind? Maybe using some of the heavy duty clear marine plastic with some hooks, or snaps that would easily attach! If anyone has seen something like this, please let me know! I'd like to do more winter fishing, but us smaller aluminum boat guys need some type of protection!

my dad made one out of clear plastic (like jeep windows) with snaps on it. when you want to enclose, just unroll it and snap it on.was very easy to make, doesn't look trashy and functions very well. think like mcgiver 8)

MJ, not sure if this is what you are looking for, but this place has some different types of clear upolstery vinyl. I think they'll even send you samples if you request them.

In Sacramento Standard Fabrics carries the clear plastic window material as well as all the snaps and stuff. Any upholstery supply place will.
