Smile Greetings from Cape Coral, Florida

I am glad to join this forum, first ever for me, so I'll try to find my way around. My wife and I have had our Mainship 400 Trawler "Glory Be" for just over a year now. We recently returned from the Bahamas and are ready to go back. The water there is so beautiful. I'm in the process of installing solar power and a watermaker so we will not be so dependent on marinas. I am looking for a hardtop to replace our bimini and mount solar panels on. We welcome any advice from our fellow boaters. See you out there!

Welcome to the forum! Just around the corner from you during the winter at Gulf Harbor.

There are several in South Florida who can build you a hardtop. Pipewelders, Atlantic Towers, and Palm Beach Towers are three whose work I'm familiar with. Others, I don't know about, include Palm Beach Boatworks, Sherman, and Fosters.

What? You can't take a Mainship to the Bahamas! Those are coastal cruisers. Please post a trip report.

Thanks,

Sidney

The water in the Bahamas must be night to day difference compared to Cape Coral now!

I'm up in Long Island right now so only know what I hear.
