Life jacket storage for t-top on 197SF or Islander?

PostMon Aug 29, 2016 11:19 pm

Does anybody have one of the life jacket t-top storage holders above the leaning post on their boat? I'm not talking about the T-bags. I'm referring to the ones that are built around the t-top. If so, is it factory made or custom?

Those are custom. I have never seen a new pioneer offered with one. You can find a local canvas builder to do one for you. The only issue I see is that it may not be too big and that if you are tall then it may interfere with your head. I have a Smith one that has done the job well. But when time come to replace it I think i will go with the one offered by vendor:

Thanks 180. Yes I've seen the surf monkey ones. They look pretty nice. I think the t-top on the Islanders are slightly larger than the pre 2015 Sportfish models due to the bigger console but I could be wrong.

Maybe I'll get some custom pricing and post here when I find out.

Bottom pipes are different but the top is about the same.
