I have both. I like the Canopy. They both have their pros and cons it all depends on the type of boating you want to do for the day.

These two boats aren't FULL canopy but they could be.
The pros are that you don't get any hot or cold wind in your face, you can wear a hat and not worry, and it looks cool
The cons are that when idleing around on a hot day it will get hot in the cockpit and visibility isn't as good as a fully open cockpit.
It realy just depends on what you like and what your going to use it for

I am in the process of a full conversion vs the half conversion we did in 2006. The noise is unreal in my carbon fiber epoxy full canopy boat. You must wear headsets to talk and to not go deaf from the noise. I had my fun with the race boat look, now I want a different boat so I cut the top off.

1st photo full top with removable top on
2nd photo removable top off
3rd photo SAWZALL!!!

If you are going strictly weather protection and versatility, Nor-Tech has got it right with the retractable hard tops. My friend Jim has got one and it is a sick ride.

Canopies can be safer if you do it right. If you haven't taken a dunker test , don't get in one. I always thought ok now I can't get thrown out but wait a minute I can drown. Full time air was a must too.
