That's a nice upgrade. Did the price include installing hardware such as lighting, antennas and the wiring? Who did that for you? Curious what the cost of canvas per sq ft was if you know?

I have it on my boat when i went with a full tower with controls. You can jump all over it with no worries. Its been installed for a few years now.

Depending on the layup - a 3/8" inch thick GRP sheet is 3 to 3.5 lb per sq ft
A 5' x 7' top will weigh 100 - 140 lb -


Fine for bigger boats with strong tops - but weight aloft increases the stress on the top legs -over time can lead to fatigue cracks on weaker tops


If you boat and top can handle it - it looks like a nice upgrade
