I just used PVC that mounts to the base pole and slip a big golf umbrella into the pipe.
I have a longer pipe to raise and lower the golf umbrella with a round handle that fits inside the pipe.

I bought a Millenium Marine Umbrella Holder for my wife and it is a great product.

I am probably going to buy a second one for my end of my boat! cheers

I've had these for 4 years, they work great. Cost me about $100 for both...

If the wind is blowing, i'm probably not hot enough to put it up. on those glass days when the fish are biting, i think i would use it a great deal. i have a bimini but harder to use fishing for crappie.

No joke .... I use PVC pipe to hold golf umbrellas with the straight handle, and after the 2nd one blew out and had to be caught before it sunk, I drilled a hole through the side of the PVC beside the umbrella handle and I now use a pin to hold them in the pipe ... haven't had one blow out since.

My umbrella poles go all the way to the floor, and are inside of a pool noodle. I cant even pull them out.
They will withstand wind up to 10-12mph. Each to their own, mine will rotate 360* around the seats.
I can get out of the sun from morning to evening. Up / down in about 2 minutes, and store in rod locker
perfectly. fish
