Well the company who I bought it from was so bad and created so many problems and has such bad customer service that I honestly do not want to give them any free advertising whatsoever. Lets just say I ordered it in January 2007 and have only just (January 2008) had a refund from them for an incompleted order.
They also had to take my boat away to their factory and have the original T-Top removed and another installed,plus I had 3 different pieces of pipe break on 3 seperate weekends due to shoddy installation and I lost 5 weeks of use during the summer.
Oh and I have to remove my navigation lights and put them somewhere else as they covered both the green and red navigation lights during their installation.

Phew !

Its now as solid as a rock and installed superbly but I would not like anyone to have the summer I have had.

T-Top

Let me just say if I was you I definitely would NOT buy it.
I have included one of the pictures when their so called professional installer grinded away the inside thread of the pipe. Therefore instead of threading the pipes together and making a stronger joint he just pushed them together and applied some 2 pack epoxy.
The 1st day out the pipe came apart, and left me having to go 5mph all the way back to the dock. It took me hours to get home.

As I said at the beginning of the thread, my rib was taken to their factory the original t-top was removed and a brand new one installed (supposedly by their engineers) Now it so steady i can hang off it and do a chin up.It just should not have taken all this time and effort to install a T-top on a rib if as they claim they are such a professional outfit. I had to wait until they came back to the NY Boat show in January at the Javits center to confront them.
This should not have been my last resort

I am most certainly NOT a happy customer and I would definitely NOT do any further buisness with them .
