View Full Version : Another Question

05-07-2018, 09:54 AM
Wow I am just full of questions lately. I did a search for Sports Brellas. I am going to crank fest in Miss. and my wife is going with me. I need to keep us cool down there in August. I know that is almost impossible but I thought a Sports Brella would help. Now for the question. Do I want the regular, super or XL. Its going on the front of my 240 SeaArk so there is quite a lot of real estate to cover. Thanks in advance. Bo

Get the xl if there is room in the boat!

I think the one I use on my SeaArk 860XV is 8 ft. in diameter.

Bought an 8 ft. at Sam's club last week for $ 39.95.

Good to know this also. I just put in my millinium side kick with umbrella attachment with 2 millinium seats. I need an umbrella also and this answers my question. Tks guys

I am in the process of transitioning a smaller 14ft mod v hull into my old man sitting down "Bill Dance" style fishing rig.

I also am going to give the umbrella thing a try but being such an efficient soul which translates actually to being "cheap" I am going to make my umbrella holder out of PCV.

Looking at umbrella sizes I decided to initially go with a smaller cheaper 6' size that also tilts which I purchased a couple from Walmart as I am planning to do one for both the front and rear seating positions on my smaller 14ft boat.

I may not be thinking of this correctly but I also was thinking about the actual weight of the umbrella so I went with a "beach" umbrella rather than the typical patio table umbrella. I do realize the lighter construction will affect longevity but at the pricing if I can get a fishing season out of it then I will be fine.

No prior experience doing this so this may or may not work.

Thanks for the help guys. Jane will appreciate it and of course I will tell her how hard it was to get all the research done to get just the right one for her.:highfive

Umbrella is the only way to go. Summer of '16 my wife called me to see how I was doing, that the temp was 103. There was a breeze and I literally was not even sweating.

I bought a couple of the HUK fishing shirts this winter, used them for the first time and was impressed how they kept from getting a burn and kept you cool.
