custom bimini top

Has anyone built a T-top that connects from a radar arch to your T-top?

If so do you mind sharing pics?

Why not post a picture of your actual set-up with the arch and the T-top? It would help to visualize what you are looking for.

How big a boat? Where are you? Lots of sun? Are you looking to have a cover over the whole back? Radar? I thought about it and went with just a small t-top.

yeah theres lots of sun in CA
No radar

I would like to cover the whole back

I want it to have a zipper on each end from the radar to the T-top so I can attach and detach as needed

Gotcha. Id check with the canvas guy but I think you might need some steel support under it.

I've just installed a T-top made from 3" aluminum tubing on my 6m Bombard Explorer. It's designed to protect from the sun and the elements but it will also provide an advantage when trolling for wahoos, tuna, mani-mahi and other big fishes. The T-top is centred on the console which is slightly offset to port but it still looks good. I still have to install the top itself, either from canvass, aluminum or fibreglass.

3" ???? I'm guessing that's plenty strong. Looks great!
