Capt. C,

I know of one at bass river marina, that you can view when the marina opens. It is mounted on a 17 ft similar to yours. Mounting
brackets are on the console as well as the floor. Maybe this spreads out the stress.... it has been in for several years and it looks fine to me. Maybe his wife will not allow him past the breakwater and the boat
has not been challanged.

I thought the entire floor of the 17 was wood. Not that I would mount a T top on one though, since at speed a small boat with a rigid top could become unstable. But can any one clarify if the floor is all wood? And by the way, ins't the transom all wood too?

I have seen several 17 Ft Makos, 17 Ft Seaways and 17 Ft Aquasports with T Tops none seem to unstable ?
