Thanks Audio.. Good idea. I was thinking about how could I install them and remove them if I wanted to or had to.

Jdub.. I do not have flip up screen.. There is a "place" for it in the hull. An indentation where the flip ups could and should go. The problem wtih the flip ups.. is that they can actually flip up on high speeds unlles they are "fastened" down. To many holes in the deck, plus I think a true windshield looks better. I rather just have a "true" windshield if they look ok. I can shave them down to be a bit lower profile. Some like it... lol some don't. My GF and son wants them.. I'm not sure yet.

I think the windshield look good but I also like the clean windshield-less look of your Active Thunder too.

I got them from Arcm co. Whole sale only but if you want some I can get them. Similar designs comes in blue, jellow, smoked and clear. There is a stamp on the side of the windshield, I'll get it Sunday. call me if you'r interested (561) 504-3635

Fever.. Thanks but it's not an AT.. It's an Avanti.. last one made. Aronow design.. somewhat modified. J.C. Simon deck. (Coyote.. Beep -Beep hull). Egg Harbor has the molds, and they are building CC's now. There are some similarities to AT's. (Don't tell that to Pat tho.. he'l never talk to me again)

Personally I like canopies in the right application. (My 38 Comp. is the perfect example!) However I feel the lines on your boat (more angular Cigarettesque) lend themselves more to the flip up kind of deflectors found on the older Top Guns. You could paint them to match and they would just blend right in.
