Can anyone with a R180 or R200 with a factory T-Top comment to whether they actually see a benefit in some way? I didn't order one with my 180 because I garage it and already need to remove the windshield but I've already designed a folding stainless unit that the windshield would mount to that would allow me to collapse the whole system by removing four "fasteners", but before I move forward, I would like to know if building it would actually provide some actual benefit. I've been taking my wife and two kids (age 9 & 13) with me on fishing trips and it seems like there is never enough room on the boat when dealing with the fish on the deck--especially in high swell conditions (6'+). Aside from the added weight and surface area for the wind to grab on to, would the legs of the top take away precious space and not provide any appreciable benefit(s)? So far I have-- Pros: Provide shade (?) Provide storage for PFDs Provide elevated location for VHF antenna Provide quicker way to lower boat height to fit in garage Cons: Add weight Add cost Takes up deck space Decrease boating and trailering performance Please share your experience with your T-Tops. I'd also be interested to know if you previously owned a boat with a top and have a boat without a top now, what your preference is (and visa-versa). Thanks and happy boating.
Happy New Year Everyone! Santa Brought a new pair of Binoculars to use on my boat (2013 R200 with T-top). Binoculars are fairly Large- They are from West Marine (Coastal 200 7x50). Curious to hear if anyone has found a secure, out of the way- but accessible spot to store their Binoculars? I am looking at some of the Simple Binocular holders that I could mount or put on the helm in front of the windscreen. I would like to hear what others have done to keep their binoculars out the way, secure from falling but still accessible when you want to grab them quickly? If it helps I'll be using the binoculars mostly for spotting fish and Birds on fish. Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts advice and experience!
Sorry if this is been asked before, but I couldn’t find anything. Has anyone had any luck finding manufactured or OEM covers for the R265 walk around? I have a 2006 R265 and to this point I haven’t found any covers that would fit it other than custom cover makers. I’m not looking for anything fancy, or snaps to be installed all around the boat, just looking for something that will last, can be pulled taught or tight, and will keep sun and elements off the top cap and above the waterline, for less than $1,000.
