Cockpit sunshade for a 2015 Coastal 290

Postby GaryS » Sun Feb 04, 2018 10:59 am

Hi all,
Does anyone have any experience with the Taylor Made T-Top Shade kit on their 290 Coastal? We are looking for an effective sun shade while hanging in the cockpit. Amazon sells them- available in 4 x 5, 5 x 5, and 6 x 5. Wondering which size would work best. Thanks!

What did your custom made top cost and how does it compare to the ones on sale at Amazon?

Paid about $400 I think. I had a bunch of work done at once. I don't know how it compares to amazon. I cant imagine getting a generic to fit that good.

$400 sounds like an excellent price. The ones I've seen around cost almost $2,000 with the aluminum or stainless steel poles that fit into the rod holders.
