Mine used to have one....
And I haven't had adverse aerodynamic effects as stated before...

It was removed and replaced with diamond plate to cover the holes before I bought it.

I have one on a Baja I am trying to sell. I think if it doesn't sell fast I will remove the arch and re-list. It should be pretty easy. I like the diamond plate idea. Is it 5200 down or screwed?

Been so long since I've looked at the boat I don't remember! I'm pretty sure it's 5200.

Sounds like you need to move to TX. I was out three times last week

could you actually design a spoiler so that it would give the back of the boat lift? i hear about people that require props with stern lift, was that ever the idea of them or were they purely for the "look"?

once saw a boat with 2 spoilers, does that make it twice as cool as a boat with one?

I'd be very careful keeping it off permanently. High speed stability could be adversely affected. Midship laminar airflow enhancement is critical to compress trailing vortices from the windshield on these models. See Dodge Daytona Superbird aerodynamics for supporting evidence of this REALLY IMPORTANT phenomenon. Be careful out there - Jeff
I agree Jeff. The increased velocity of the air over the glass during acceleration is inversely proportional to the reciprocal of the bi-lateral flow and can give you up to five knots extra speed!

And to answer the original question...YES, it comes off with bolts.
But why on earth would anyone want to remove a radar bridge?????
After all.........where would you hang your wet towels?
