Call Raymond Martin of Martin Marine in Hardeeville SC if you want the best you can get with a custom job. He is a member of this site. His handle is Lunker.


I've worked with boats all my life and Raymond Martin builds the finest T-tops and other metal fab products that I've ever seen. Plus he's a dang good guy, wished I met him sooner in life. He might not be the least expensive, but neither am I smile.gif Anything he builds you will be happy with. First class all the way. That's where my boats go for aluminum work. He's not just good, he is amazing.

email him at lunker@hargray.com Tell him the Coach and I sent you. Unless you are looking for a $899 top, then maybe contact somebody else instead. Depends on if you want it done right, or done cheap. You never get both wink.gif

Good morning! Much thanks to the Fishin' Coach and Cracker Larry for their kind remarks! I own a small fabrication shop called Martin Marine Design in Hardeeville South Carolina. We design and manufacture a line of boat products that are sold all over the world. We make custom bow rails, swim platforms, fishing stations, stern seats, and t-tops. My custom t-tops are second to none. In fact, you will not find a better looking, or better constructed t-top anywhere. Here are some links to a few projects we recently completed, which gives you a step by step illustration of the build process:

Here is the link to the t-top we built for the Fishin' Coach:

He came to us with the idea of sitting on top of the t-top to spot redfish. This is where a custom t-top shines! We can build the top to suit your boating needs, outfitted with any accessories that you want.

The CHINA made Fishmaster and Stryker tops will certainly get the job done at a great price. However, you will have to install it yourself and there are limits to what accessories you can add. And because they are a universal fit, they will not fit tight against the console like a top from Boykin or Me. On the Carolina Skiff hull, you will have to mount the legs really wide which looks odd and gets in the way.

A well designed, well made custom top does come at a premium price. However, your t-top will last the life of your boat and so you should get the most you can afford. Not only will our custom top function perfectly, they look awesome! Please let me know if you have any questions!

Take care, Raymond Martin
