T- Tops

T-Tops are found on boats with a center console and offer sun protection to the driver and a bit of shade around the center of the boat.  A t-top is traditionally a rectangular shaped aluminum or stainless steel frame with some cross supports and one piece of canvas lashed to it.  Instead of the snaps and zippers that accompany most other boat tops like Bimini tops and camper covers the canvas for a t-top is "lashed" to the frame with cording.

Aft Enclosure

You have multifaceted goals for what you want in your enclosure. The Aft curtain attaches to the back of your arch and extends back to secure to the aft of the boat. Can contain windows.

Mooring Covers

A mooring cover is what most people think of when they think of a traditional boat cover.  Unlike a cockpit that uses snaps to attach to the boat for coverage in a certain area, a mooring cover covers the entire boat, generally to or just below the rub rails on the sides, and cinches tight using a rope sewn in a hem all the way around the cover and/or with straps running under the boat from one side to another.

Wakeboard Bimini Tops

If you have a wakeboard tower, the bimini top will need to be specially designed to work with the tower. It may attach directly to the tower legs or fit inside of the tower legs, but still be attached to the boat's gunnels.  If the tower came from the factory with the boat, it is possible we can have a bimini top made specifically for that boat's wakeboard tower.  Likely Great Lakes Boat Top would have designed one for the boat manufacturer if a wakeboard tower was a factory option for that boat. 

Bimini Tops

Bimini tops are made out of aluminum or stainless steel frame that is shaped to support a stretched canvas top with open sides.  The bimini top is collapsible to fold down out of the way for storage or when not in use on the water.  Generally, the bimini top covers from the windshield back to behind the driver to offer respite from the sun, but allow movement inside of the boat.
