I am building a three frame bimini that will attach to a radar arch with snaps.  It will not have straps in the rear.  It will not be free standing without being attached to the arch.  My question is, should I put zippers on the rear tail and then make an attachment for the arch that zips to the bimini and then snaps to the arch or sew the attachment to the bimini in place of the tail?  Hope this makes sense.

I recommend the zipper approach. I think you will find that you can create a better tailored fit in this manner.
Thanks, Matt

That is the way I was leaning.  Thanks for the reinforcement.
