Here is a picture of my 35 Lightning Classic with the top up. When it is down the main bows move to a second set of flush brackets (where the rear straps are) and the top is behind the engine hatches so that you can open the hatches up.

Saw your boat and said hello last weekend at Club 105. You beat us out to the lake that day. But actually, that complete enclosure would be damn nice for a cruise on a cold winter day!!

I don't think any of those could handle more than 40 mph, +/-.

For some shade when anchoring, check out an anchor shade.

You are correct, the manufacture "American Canvas" said 40 mph, I think I have gone 45-50 but it looked pretty stressed at those speed. But at Lake Havasu in the summer when it is 115 degrees keeping the sun off is more important than going fast. I can alway drop it down when it is time to goooo!
