Default Upgraded from canvas to Hardtop

I recently upgraded my canvass top and replaced it with a custom top from Hard To Top (polycarbonate and anodized aluminum extrusion photos attached).

What a difference the top is really sturdy and can with withstand high winds so much better than canvas, also it much cooler underneath on hot days. This was easy to install (best done with 2 people). Used my bimini top and my existing side curtains.

This top is guaranteed for 10 years and last 4-5 times longer than canvas and a comparable price.

Absolutely dry, by design the watew runs to the corners and drains out.

I like the idea of this. Perhaps if slightly smaller I might consider. Do you have a link to the website?

hello Ian E'

When I ordered mine the measurements you take for a quote are based on the size of your binimi framework. Go to Home | Hard To Top and you will get all the info you need.

False.

Boat in picture one has a radar arch, square window frames, and flat gunwhales with stripes,

Boat in the rest of the pictures has round windshields no radar arch, and up curving gunwhales at the back edge of the window.

Also boat in pics 2 and 3 is the example boat from the companies website.

something smells funny about this post....

Interesting. Initially I assumed he simply removed the radar arch. However, your right!! The windshield is a completely different shape.

My mistake I grabbed the picture of my neighbors boat. We measured his for a quote when I was taking pics of mine. As for my pics on the website I sent them in to them. sorry for the confusion.
