Nice looking rig. thumbsup1

The tee-top will give a bit of protection from the sun while not interfering too much with fishing space. Nice setup

Thanks Chris,

I will probably get some clears made to give the kids some cover when it's cold, but was very keen to not interfere with fishing space.

Is the T-Top a custom job?

Who you thinking of getting to do the clears? think1

I know someone that could do with a T-Top on his CC whistlingdixie1

Hi Chris,

It's a Dolphin T-Top, I got it second hand from a guy who ordered it, then changed his mind, it was still in the box and I saved a few hundred bucks so was very happy with that. They are available from http://stores.ebay.com.au/WITNESS-BIMINIS-AUSTRALIA

I can vouch for their build quality and the width is adjustable so are fairly versatile. They are very popular in the US and gaining more popularity out here as a brand.

Happy to show your mate if he is interested.

I'm not sure who I'll get to do the clears, any recommendations for someone, preferably on the eastern shore would be good.

There is the guy up at Mornington top of the road towards the tip.

There is also another guy that did some work for someone I know. I think it is mentioned on here, I will have a bit of a look and get back to you thumbsup1

Thanks for the offer of coming to have a look, what you think John? Want to go have a look and see if suitable for the Archer? grin1

McPhersons in Mornington did Justin's canopy and Tas Trim Cambridge did my father in laws work.

Hope that helps out

Thanks, I'll give one of them a try once I do a bit of fishing and work out what I want.

Looks great Bartman thumbsup1 A set of clears will definately provide you with that additional protection. How you thinking of running them. Full lengths sides to floor level and the full lenght of the t-top think1

Hi Proka,

Yeah something like that, not really 100% sure yet! but will be keen to make sure it's fairly easy to remove and store (probably roll up out of the way). I'm thinking that 3 different floor to T-Top sections up front that zip together so that I can have it open in the centre section of boarding, anchor access and the like.

Happy to take advice from anyone with a similar set up.

Certainly makes sense Bartman cause there'll be days you don't want them there at all and days you do badday1  cold1

Don't reckon the front section will be too bad to do but there looks to be a fair bit of lenght in the side curtians which might flap a bit which could cause it to stretch. I'd be making sure they had a good heavy duty webbed edge down the stern end vertical.

Great looking setup too thumbsup1
