About Bhamgreg

  1. Spoke with the dealer this morning and evidently Chaparral uses several different manufacturers for the bimini frame. I have to take a picture of the port side downtube and measure that tube and send it to the dealer who will send it to Chaparral and in 3 to 4 weeks, I might get one. Evidently this item doesn't have a part number. Not a real satisfied owner right now. This too, will pass...
  2. It was folded, strapped, and had the Chaparral cover on it. I'm not positive I didn't lose it when I originally tried to put the bimini up. Only problem is the dealer I purchased the boat from is in Johnson City, TN and I'm in Birmingham. I'll check with them and see. Thanks much, great advice.
  3. With a little help from a tall friend, I'm vertically challenged, we were able to roll out/put up the bimini top this weekend believe it or not, it wasn't too back. Some trial and error, the biggest error is a missing lower downtube to secure the starboard side. I saw the gray "clip" fall but the downtube (for lack of knowing its nomenclature) and searched all around and it "turned up missing". If anyone has a Chaparral part number for the lower tube that fits into the bracket and secures the frame, I sure would appreciate receiving the number. Almost to the 20-hr mark and enjoying my boat tremendously. Greg, signature and pictures to come soon.
  4. Just wondering if any fellow Alabamians around Logan Martin Lake are on the forum.
  5. Thanks to both Philip and Brett, I'll definitely give it a try this weekend. I appreciate the help and I knew that I would get some from the forum members.
  6. Help: I have a new, 2015 H2O 21 Sport (8 hours now) and do not have an instruction sheet nor a link to a video on how to set up the bimini top. I use the term set up because it is "installed", i.e., in the bag around the wakeboard tower but I do not seem to be able to open it up and expand it as it should be. My dealer pointed me to a youtube video but that wasn't much help. I checked with Chaparral and was told their technical department doesn't deal directly with the public. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Greg
