    I see the merits of the lower one - nice curve to that big bar, matches the curve of the top of the flybridge itself.

    The best one would be the top one but with a better curve similar to the lower one. Don't change the proportions too much, tho - the lower one somehow looks top heavy.

    So... you still have one more design job left to go. That bar for the top one is too abrupt, it needs the curve of the lower one.

    Thanks everyone for 'voting', profile 'b' has gone to engineering stage. Expect that official drawing to be finished this week then it goes out for bid.... Any suggestions on builders for polished aluminum structure? Wesmac will handle the top itself but the structure will be subbed out. Thanks again -Mike

    Yes Henifruit they do, I'm sure they will be bidding on project- along with Pipedreams in New Jersey. Seeing what else is out there and quality of work.

    Your boat is stunning. Did you consider a full tower above the flybridge? Absolutely gorgeous.
