    newbe here - bimi top fundeck gs 194 I/O

    I have a quick question as I just bought a 2007 GS 194 I/O and I am trying to figure out if it is ok to trailer with bimi top in the boot as I can't figure out if I should lay it down forward or backward.  

    thanks for any input...

      Welcome to the owner's forum!  

      I have towed my boat long distances with the bimini top in the highest position with the boot on it with no issues.  The lower position would probably have less resistance and would be fine as well.  My top only lowers towards the rear of the boat and has low mount brackets to secure it in place there (yours should have them too).  I can't comment on stowing it in a forward position.  I attached a picture of the location of the short rails I have on my top (they make great flag mounting locations, LOL).
