Default Stryker VS Dolphin T Top??

Hi , I am new to this forum, I recently purchased a 2004 Nautic Star 2100 Fishing Boat 150 hp, I would like add a T Top, any recomendations? Can anybody tell me if it is better to have it attached to the floor or purchase a custom made that gets attached to the center console?
Thanks a lot!

Always go with a custom all welded T-Top. You can get one made for your boat for 2500

I had a top made by L&C Fabrication in Des Allemands, Extremely well built a very fair price.

Definitely attached to floor....and CC too. There is a bit of force on the top from wind resistance as well as the pitching motion of the boat. I had a 25ft Shamrock with a console mounted T-top (offshore boat) that worked the console loose on it's mounting. I had Sterling marine in New Iberia make one for a 24 Bluewave and it is first rate craftsmanship from the welds/gusseting/attachment to the canvas work. Go custom, it is worth the cost IMO.

Beach umbrella stuck into a rod holder, throw that sucker in the rod box when you don't need it so you can actually fish more than 1.5 people in the boat.
