Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9921753A1] Bimini's are an almost standard equipment/annex on sailing- and motor-boats, navigating the sunny regions of the globe. They are normally fix-mounted over the steering wheel and over a part of a cockpit area, to protect the steersman and crew from too intense exposure to sun radiation. The new developped Bimini has a central-in relation to its movable screen-attached support frame, fixed to the pedestalguard (monohull) or a vertical part of the hull (multihull and motocrafts). It consists of curved rotatable support tubes, provided with upper extensible tubes (6) to which a rotating/sliding device (1) is fixed. This device clasps the middle bar of the screenframe. The whole design and structure enables the omission of straps or strings to set up, fix and stabilise the frame; free rotating and/or sliding of the Bimini around its axis. Further advantage consists in the transparency of the screen (S) providing visual control of the sails.
