  1. the guy was informing people that the guy selling it had given the previous owner a story about it being his dream boat etc. and had only paid $9500 for it. apparently this person must have known the original owner/seller, given the details. wasn't happy about an 80-something year old man being taken advantage of (in his eyes).

    tubing is all stainless.

    some custom bent stainless tubing...

    that's an option. looking at other models for reference purposes. the hard part would be keeping it clean looking and unobtrusive so it doesn't block too much visually.

    thanks todd.
  9. Crestliner Eagle Wobbly Hardtop

    thanks, i'll do that. if i had designed this, it definitely would've had some cross bracing in the mix (along with some other stuff). just common sense. but alas, they didn't request my presence with the design team.

    i may end up going that route, or something similar. i'm going to try beefing up the backing plates up front first, then see how the rear mounts look, and go from there. i really don't want to add more tubing to it if i don't have to. $$$.

    i've had that thought as well. been trying to visualize some way of adding supplemental left/right bracing without it being too obtrusive. oh, no glass on this rig. it's all aluminum.

    i see what you're saying. i don't have any pics of the roof attachments, and she's still shrink wrapped for her long winter's nap. when it shakes side to side, i can see the aluminum dashboard (the black area) flex. i'm guessing that the setup itself is very top heavy, causing excessive movement in the mounts.

    i had a 2012 superfisherman that had tracks on it from the factory. before i used them, i made sure they were solid. i'm glad i checked... they were only screwed to the gunwales. not bolted, and no backer plates or washers. if yours came with tracks from the factory, check em first!
