    Hi all,

    I'm new to the forums, I have owned a 2003 trophyo for the past year. Love the boat, been real good for me. I have a question hopefully someone might be able to answer, I the boat mainly for saltwater fishing in Hawaii and would like to add outriggers to the hardtop. Does anyone know if the hardtop is strong enough to support this or do I need to attach some other support? Thanks for any help.

    Welcome and Aloha! I've never actually seen outriggers on the cabin top of anything newer than 1945, but I live in an area where outriggers are rare. Thinking about the stresses that would be applied, weight probably is as much of an issue as the twisting load when in operation. You may need to do some modification to mitigate that, but that's always the case.
