I am also a Floridian often seeking sun relief while in the Islands. Like you I also wear long pants, long sleve shirt and a Tilly hat. Sunscreen alone won't keep the intense midday sun from becoming painful.
I really do like the bimini design but how do you keep it from hitting the bottom side of the sail.
I'm 5'10" and I have to duck slightly to get the sail to pass over my head. Plus when sailing upwind on a tight reach the sail practically rests beside my head. How do you manage the sail clearance with the bimini?
Your website is impressive. I also couldn't help but identify with your opening post about steering conversations with others into talking about the Island
I have been guilty of that many times.
