Bimini Top position on SD 217

WHEN MY BIMINI TOP IS PUT UP - IT TILTS WAY BACK. IS THIS THE NORMAL POSITION OR CAN IT BE ADJUSTED TO A MORE LEVEL POOSITION ?

    On my 217 there are 2 different length adjustment poles for the bimini top.  The shorter pole is actually only used when the top is in the completely folded and stored position to drop it down as low as possible.  This helps if you are storing the boat in dry storage like I do so the top will fit into the storage rack.  You need to use the long poles when you are actually using the top in the fully open position.

    Should look like this fully open:

    You can see the shorter poles next to the longer poles are not in use, but in the stored position with the top up.  Also note the location of the rear support is up next to the back of the seat and not in the lower position that is used with the shorter poles.
