The following link is on the Documentation page of Chrysler Sailors. There are a few pics of OEM bimini top for the C22. Congrats on the new to you C22. There is tons of great helpful info on this forum. I myself am getting my 77 C22 ready to sail. Welcome aboard!

CLS72,

I am too looking for a C22 Bimini. Let me know if you are able to find a design or a manufacturer. I'll do the same.

While cleaning my basement, I realized I have a Chrysler bimini. I no longer have the boat and didn't use the bimini in the 15years I sailed her. The previous owner did use it as I sailed on it a couple of times with it up, so I know it works. Not sure how it was attached or deployed, but I recall a fitting on both sides of the sides cockpit side-coaming(is that a nautical term?) that I think was its main attachment point--will have to look in old photos for that.

It is folded up with a cover zipped on it leaning on the wall behind some boxes I am starting to look at for downsizing. It appears to have the fabric in good shape but with a decade's worth of dust/dirt and spider webs on it. Though I would have to move it out to open it up and check that or photograph it. Not sure what a reasonable price to sell it for, but delivery/pickup is the practical issue that would need to be solved (I am in Kansas City). I would love to see it get used and enjoyed.

Any interest?

Right. I'll probably reach it by the end of the week. So I guess that means I am promising to get it out and take and post pics by the weekend.
