Sea trials for the Finbrella F-280 boat umbrella were carried out in Cockburn Sound aboard a new Naiad rib boat courtesy of Kirby Marine. On a beautiful spring morning the Finbrella demonstrated effortless stability at weaving speeds to 24 knots. With a simple customized bracket, a range of all marine Recacril canopies, both the 316 stainless centre pole version and the anodized aluminium centre pole versions were put through their paces.
As a bimini substitute passengers and spectators all agreed this boat umbrella is simply the best.
Thanks to Kirby Marines' Rob & Adrian for skippering and John at Perth Video Productions for the video & still shots.
