Default Fiberglass T-Tops

Looking to upgrade the center console t-top this year with a fiberglass hard top..... Any recommendations on where to get one in the Destin/panama city/ pensacola area? Already have a t-top, just want to replace the canvas with a hard top. Thank in advance.....

Default Hardtop

We can and do complete that type of work on a regular basis. We drop off and pick up at the Ships Chandler on a regular basis. We are just off Hwy. 98 about 8 miles east of Gulf Breeze. Call Tim @ 554 6172 for more info.

Thanks,
Are the fiberglass tops standard or do they have to be custom built? Also, if you wouldnt mind maybe PM'ing me a quote. Looking to self-install, just need to pick one up.

Default Fiberglass replacement for canvsas

The fiberglass material used mostly is a gel coat slick side which faces down towards the boat. The top side is generally finished with a non skid with gel coat rolled or sprayed over the top to seal it. It is cored with a synthetic tiny honey comb material called Core matt. We pay $13 a square ft. for it. We have to pre pay to have the sheet made in a square say 5 X 7 = $455. We have to pick it up from the manufacterer which is about a 50 mile round trip for us. It is then clamped to the top of your T Top. At this time all the contours, curves and straights are marked for your top. It then is removed and is cut to shape. A black edge\trim is then bonded to the edge with 5200. The glass then gets clamped back on top and holes are drilled and tapped thru the glass and into the pipe on the perimeter of your T Top. We sell it complete for for $18 per square which would be atotal of $630for the 5 X 7 installed. I think its a fair price for the labor and material that goes into the finished product. Anyone who wants to DIY can come by and I will order the glass at our cost or real close to it depending on how much time I spend with you going over the project so you make no mistakes. I will help anyone from this forum anyway I can to save you $$$. Tim

Built this one for my uncles 21 seacraft last winter and had about the 500 in it and that is not counting who knows how many hours of labor/do overs.
