T-top mock up

Here is the mock up of my future t-top. 4'x6'. Will have radar, gps antenna, vhf antenna, nav lights, deck lights....

The local guy works in stainless and that might be handy and we are considering attaching it to the existing console rails. He just did that for another Williard in Santa Barbara

I bet a T top fitted on a small rib would look pretty cool

Has it ever been done anyone ??

Somewhere yes. I'll have a look. They are on an old phone. It was a 7metre boat but a smallish console. I posted it on here ages ago. It was done in black with bolster seating. If I can't get the pics I know where the boat is

I know that it would be very Blingy Bling but a smaller version on a 5.4 if it could be done.... would look unusual I know..... but cool.

Cool. I realized mine looks a bit goofy in one aspect, I'm 6'7" so it sits up a bit higher than most. I think I can drop it an inch or two.

The trailer I have sits the boat up high so the overall trailer height is sort of an issue, I'm going to be within a foot of max, 12' high or so on the trailer with the radome

I think that you can go up to 14' in California. And remember, you're "overwidth" and need a permit to tow! ($90/yr - I'll admit, mine lapsed last Oct)

Here are some Navy pics. I saved them because they just went off the console.

When the new thingy get mounted on the transom bracket?
