Hey Everyone... I'm looking for assistance from anyone on here who has a Gladiator Tower with a Bimini. Looking for anyone who can take pic's and measurements of the TWO rear support poles that go from the back of the tower to the rear of the Bimini "T" slot's on the cross member. I know there is some type of black plastic piece the is a "stop" on the tower side that keeps the poles from sliding too far inside the tower. Also, on the Bimini end, there is a slight bend a few inches where is slides into the "T"  connector on the rear cross member of the bimini. I need an overall length measurement, a measurement for how far the pole slides into the tower and a measurement for the length of the bent end. Thanks in advance for whoever can assist... I've got the new poles in but just trying to figure out these final measurements!

Thanks brother.... Is the black piece on the tower side a joiner? from the photo it almost looks like its a 3/4" that inserts into the tower and 7/8' to the Bimini. Ive got a 3/4" tubing but it is way loose on the bimini end which has made me wonder if that black plastic piece is a joiner. I know 7/8" will not slide into tower. Can you confirm if its to separate pieces and sizes and or just one piece and the black plastic piece on the tower end is a stop?

Thanks again for the photos and measurements....

It does help, thank you very much. I was missing how far the drop was on the bend. I can't find that plastic clamp/coupling so I'm just going to TIG the 3/4" into the 7/8"... That 7/8 will not go inside the rear of the bimini so that in itself will be the "stop". 

Thanks again!

      Just read your message regarding restoring your Barefoot Falcon.  I have a 1991 Barefoot Falcon with exact same floor issues.  I also had to replaced the stringers and am in the process of replacing the floor.  My question is regarding the need to replace the foam.  Like you I have several hundred pounds of saturated foam removed and I am not certain to replace it or leave it without foam.  Do you are anyone know if the foam is necessary for any structural support, or is it just for sound and flotation?
