Hard Tops for trawler flybridges

Wow.... thanks for all the versions.... glad that you had time to play around with the design versions... * For me, seeing makes choosing easier then just imagining.

Thanks everyone for all the comments and ideas.

And if any of you are ever anywhere near us (Sunset Bay Marina, Wilson New York) I hope you'll drop by dock #78!

Susan and Dan

RE: Hard Tops for trawler flybridges

Well if I was me and in Alaska or Washington state I'd go for the last (#6) photo.
But if I was Delia Rosa I'd go for the 2nd or 4th pic.
The hard top looks bad as it is just a flat slab. It actually makes the boat look less attractive than it was. The soft tops don't look good either but they are almost netural.
If it were my boat in sunland I'd sans the FB and but a nice big canvas cover the entire aft deck. What a great place it would be. Oh*** ...I just noticed the Davit and dinghy.
Tony I see your point but I don't think those slab/big flat board supports look good anywhere as they represent too much visual mass. That high up the visual mass is too objectionable. Small dia metal struts look light even if they are not. Another way to make the boat look light high up is to make the canvas the light brown (beige) color.

For mine, I'd go for 3 or 4 as the pick of the bunch. I like shade up top, but minimal windage and weight.
