Here is another suggestion.

The two Vacuum-Epoxy-Lightweight-Parts where made in Le Marin by ALIZE COMPOSITES (Manu).
It is the same company made the not any longer existing mold for the hardtop.
All other (small) modifications/ materials came also from the yard in Le Marin.
The rest was a lot of manual work by ourselves.

The old bimini frame is still used.  A very functional and economical variant.  It carries 680W solar, collects rainwater, allows a very good all-round view, has an integrated grip edge and the sails can also be visually checked from the armchair.  My wife just uploaded a video about this at:
