Have you ever shown up to the boat and she's TOPLESS?

    Greetings all,

    So I finally have made the change of the dark green canvas color on the boat. I wanted to be able to use the boat more comfortably in rain and cold so a camper made sense. I had my buddy Zack design the layout and make the top for me. I do plan on putting zipper screens in the front three panels but here's what she looked like this past weekend. It's so much cooler with the new canvas now. I had to make the thread name like it was because when I showed up to the boat that was my first response... "Wow, I haven't seen her topless for years!" Everyone else got a good laugh and I thought that we could use one on a Monday morning?

    Looks great and with good visibility. Nice job! Don't forget to install some isinglass nylon spacers where the framing contacts the windows.

    Very nice. I do not like the factory layout with the top attaching directly to the windshield frame. Made it very uncomfortable to drive and very hot due to no airflow. I had a new top made this spring and went with a style like yours with the raised front. So much nicer and a nice breeze when you are cruising.

    We have added camper package to all of our boats, you are going to love it. It's like adding another room.

    Nice upgrade Jason! Plenty of headroom, ventilation, and visibility. I bet it reflects more heat than the old dark green too.

    Jason, that is one very nice looking canvas job. But topless? Hardly. Here's topless.......

    Just kidding. I really like the looks of the job that you had done. Smooth, seamless, very good looking.

    Thanks everyone... I'm happy and I got some new carpet for the cockpit as well so I'll have to get some photo's of that.

    I'd be happy to give you his information. He does great work and I have suggested him to several people on here.

    I like it. It looks great but....the green bottom paint kind of sticks out. May be time to go to black at the next bottom paint job.

    I agree but I will have a "few" more years of the green as I purchased a few gallons awhile back when I was told that the green would no longer be available and the price was basically buy one get one free.

    If you look closely in the photos you'll see they are already installed where they touch the glass.

    Thanks all.
