After market T-Top for R180

Recommended Posts

All of the pre-fab tops are pretty much the same. I had one and my advce is to stay away from them. I had a Fishmaster that I couldn't keep tightened up and the stainless mounting bolts eventually stripped out the threads in the aluminum and I had to get a welder to weld up the whole thing. For only a few hundred $$$ more I got a custom built top for my current boat that's a work of art.

With as much as you paid for your boat, don't cheap out and get something you are going to be unhappy with every time you look at your boat.

Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.

I persaonlly tend to like a Bimini better, in that it gives more shade and protection. Also some of the smaller (18 19 foot boats perform differently with that weight aloft. When fishing, our Bimini drops down forward, and is flush with our casting platform. Nothing in the way of fishing--With a T top, it can be in the way for certain types of casting. 

There is some drag when trailering with a conventional T top.
