Extending bimini pole

#1 Post by jefflw » Tue Jun 21, 2016 8:57 am

I just recieved a replacement fabric top from Overton's and it fits well. Only issue is one of my center bows on my bimini frame is shorter than the other. Never noticed it until we installed it on the frame. So one bow is a few inches short of zipping into the top. If i make it the same size as the other bow and move the mounts down a bit it will work.

Now I just need to somehow extend the square tubing about 5 inches on each side.
I belive it is 1 1/4" tube with a 1" ID. I'm thinking of getting two 5" long 1 1/4" pieces and picking up some 1" OD tube and sliding it inside the 1 1/4" tube. Will then be through bolted like the rest of the frame. I'm just not sure if the 1" tubing will fit inside the 1 1/4" tubing.

Anyone done this?
