T Tops for 730 and 733s

Where did you buy yours?

Do they have to be custom made?

Price?

I know Jason has one, and have sent a PM.

Kind of scared to hear how much though.

The one thing we did different on mine was to attach into the existing grab rail around the console. I was trying to save floor space, there isn't much along the side. It's holding up so far. It's stainless instead of aluminum.

I used a local slo guy, the only local guy I think. It's wasn't as expensive as it could have been. I don't actually recall how much it was. He did the dram and the local canvas guys did the fabric.

Here's what Pacific Yacht Towers in Vista did for a Willard. Can still access the engine compartment with this set up.

Very nice.
I was at Home Depot today and looks like I can pick some PVC pipe, duct tape, zip ties, and a tarp for around $50.

For purposes of a mock up, cheap plastic tubing might save a few more dollars and be at least as rigid as using PVC for a mock up.

4'x6' is a real good size to start.
