    1996 20ft trophy installing a hardtop-gctid357039

    has anyone installed an aftermarket hardtop on their boat? i picked up a used hardtop for my trophy and just wondering how it will affect stability it is 102" long x85" wide and will sit at approx 6'6" high thanks for any advice (weighs about 150lbs) and comes with alum frame

    Have no experience installing a hard top. But if you are going from no top to either a hard or soft canvas top you will see a big difference in how the boat handles in a side wind. The top is just a big ole sail to keep your butt dry.

      I have installed a hardtop on my 2001 trophy 2052. Here's a photo. It doesn't handle too much differently than before. Wind does affect handling as mentioned by other post. I wouldn't be without a hardtop now that I have it. I love it.

          Casco Bay. Where'd you pick up that hard top? It's a great looking addition. Do you mind sharing the cost? I just spent $1200 replacing the soft top, and wish that I'd gone your route. The West Coast can be very miserable, and you have the ideal weather hut!!

                  I hard a local shop, Redman Marine in Maine supply it. The cost was $ 4500.00 with 4 rocket launchers and light. http://www.redmanmarinefabricators.com/

                  The canvas cost me another $ 1000. A local shop custom fit that for me. http://www.fortunecanvas.com/

                  I tried to post more pictures but can't seem to. I did a number of upgrades to the boat that would like to share.
