WHAT IS A CENTER CONSOLE T-TOP?
A center console t-top is specifically designed for fishing boats with a center console, which is a raised structure in the center of the boat that houses the steering wheel and controls. The t-top is attached to the floor of the boat on either side of the center console and extends upwards and outwards, providing shade and protection for the people on the boat.
CAN I USE A T-TOP ON OTHER TYPES OF BOATS?
T-Tops are popular on center console fishing boats, as they provide a good vantage point for spotting fish and other underwater creatures, and they also offer protection from the sun and wind while fishing and driving the boat. They can also be used on other types of boats, such as sport boats and cruisers, to provide additional shade and cover. However, you need to ensure the boat has enough clear space on the floor for the feet of your t-top to be installed and if you have a console of any kind there needs to be enough clearance on both sides.
CONSTRUCTION OF T-TOPS
Center console t-tops are typically made of sturdy, durable materials such as aluminum or stainless steel, and they are designed to withstand the harsh marine environment. Many are anodized or powder coated to create a durable finish. Some brands of t-tops are built to easily fold down for storage and passing under low clearances, and they can be equipped with various accessories such as lights, speakers, rod holders, storage bags, and radar.
DO I NEED A T-TOP ON MY BOAT?
Whether or not you need a t-top on your center console fishing boat is largely a matter of personal preference. T-Tops can provide several benefits for fishing boats, such as shade, protection from the sun and elements, and a mounting point for accessories. However, they can also add weight and windage to the boat, which can affect its performance and handling.
If you frequently fish in sunny or windy conditions, or if you want to add accessories such as lights, speakers, or radar to your boat, a t-top may be a good choice for you. On the other hand, if you prefer an open and unencumbered fishing platform, or if you are concerned about the added weight and windage of a t-top, you may want to consider other options such as a bimini top or a canopy.
Ultimately, the decision to add a t-top to your center console fishing boat will depend on your specific needs and preferences. It may be helpful to consider factors such as the type of fishing you do, the weather conditions you typically encounter, and your budget when deciding whether or not to install a t-top on your boat.
WILL A T-TOP FIT IN MY GARAGE?
To determine whether a t-top will fit in your garage, you will need to measure the available space in your garage and compare it to the dimensions of the t-top. Keep in mind that you will need to measure the height of the t-top in addition to the height of your boat to get a complete measurement.
However, if vertical space is at a premium, you might opt for a t-top that’s designed to fold like the Fishmaster Original or Pro Series T-Top. With Fishmaster’s twice-folding design, it is easy to fit in your garage as well as under low bridges or overhangs. Fishmaster’s t-tops fold down easily with quick release knobs, helping make storage and exploring different waterways easier!
