Yes I am so sorry I did not include photos to begin with I thought I did. When I get to the other computer with more photos I will update this and put up some more. I hope this one can give you an idea!

1/4 inch starboard is thin enough to bend over the arch...... excellent work there.

I use it alot and love it.

KING starboard will naturally take the shape of the support rails. Since KING starboard is not extremely rigid in the horizontal position it naturally takes the form of the support rails. there is no special bending involved. To do the curves we need a template or a drawing and we can fabricate to that size. we can also weld on a 2-4 inch lip all around the edge of the T-Top to make it look thicker or to give it a drainage lip.

Hope this helped.

Thank you so much for the compliment. We usually use 3/8 inch but we can do it with a 1/4 too. Would love to see some of your work sometime!

We did some measurements for what we would consider a standard T-Top and we came up with 1/4 inch starboard will weigh 1.25 pounds per square foot. 3/8 inch starboard or t top weighs 1.87 pounds per square foot.

I guess what I dont see is how you keep the starboard secured to the outer perimeter t-top rails where the lacing would typically go.

I can see on a top designed for a hardtop where you would have large enough diamater pipign to bolt into around the rim but Im curious how this is done with SB.

Any more pics?

We just did a huge T-Top about a month ago I am looking for that pic on my camera now so that I can post it.

And it doesnt get bolted around the rim. It just get through bolted on the arch. its not required to bolt it around the edge.
I hope that helps. You can give us a call and we can talk about it further. Sometimes its easier to explain over the phone. 800-806-6479

ok so here are some pics of the T-Top I am going to repost this on a new thread too.
This is a HUGE T-Top we did for an older Chris Craft.
We took 2 1/2 full sheets of KING StarBoard. We templated the existing top and built the new T-Top with a 4" Lip.
The KING StarBoard was plastic welded into one piece. We installed it with the boat in the water.
We used a small electric winch to pull the tip onto the existing frame annnnddd

Viola!

I dont think I do. I could explain it to you the best I can if you give a call.

Thanks
