Default Sailfish 206 CC Bimini & Cushions

I have a 2006 Sailfish Center Console 206 under contract. The boat has a Yamaha 150 4 stroke outboard with 260 hours. A friend of mine has checked the boat out in person and said that it is very clean. I am going to look at it myself this Saturday. If the boat is still desirable after Saturday, I have an appointment with a mobile marine mechanic scheduled for the following Tuesday. If the boat is deemed to be in great overall mechanical condition, I will have the opportunity to close the sale Tuesday afternoon.

Any thoughts on this particular boat?

Also, where would be the best place to find a cushion for the bow of the boat, at least for the 2 sides.

And, as you can see in the pictures, the bimini top is forward. Would it be better to have it turned around so it will lean towards the back of the boat? Also, with this type of 3 bar bimini system, will I still be able to lay the whole top down in order to cover the boat up to keep it clean when it is in a covered slip, on a pole lift.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Will

Great boat - the 20's bottom traces back to the old Seacraft, and is a great running hull.

You can have cushions made, but the easy route is the factory package. It's two lowers that fill the entire bow, and three side backrest cushions. Makes it a nice set up for family use, then unsnap and leave home when fishing. They will match your console and L/P upholstery. Usually takes 6 weeks unless you find a dealer with a set in stock.

The Bimini is better with the stiff legs forward. The forward motion makes the frame stretch open, held by the straps, rather than stretching against the straps in the fwd position. (Opinions vary on tops, that's mine)

Hope the sale turns out, you'll love the boat.
