Project Description

We built a bimini, dodger, connector and enclosure with Framework for a 2015 Catalina 445. The project used a combination of Strataglass and Makrolon, with Sunbrella fabric throughout. The customers needed a complete canvas outfit including framework, bimini, dodger, connector, enclosure, strapless bimini struts and solar panel frames. The clients requested a design that complemented the contour of the boat. We used 1.25-inch stainless for the bimini frame and attached it to the rails.
