Default Who made this top?

Back in Oct. 2016 I was in a yacht yard near the State Port in Wilmington and saw this 32 Blackfin named Catch This. It was there getting this half tower installed. Any idea who's work this is? I am looking to get the same for my 32 Blackfin, and this was the nicest I have ever seen. Unfortunately, I just heard that this boat sank about 18 mos ago.

Don't know but I am sure if you took these pictures and your boat to a good tower builder, they could replicate it for you

Down in that area the fellas at Gore Marine have been making excellent stuff for many years. I would give them a call and maybe send them the pic.

High Speed Welding is another company in that area, could also call the yard and ask the yard guys.

Good looking top

Gore Marine is the company in that area to do any top fabrication. They’ve been doing it a long time and do excellent work.

All good suggestions. Matt Winchell of Winchell Marine builds thefiberglass tops for a lot of boats in the area. His shop is just above Isabel Holmes bridge.
