How To Make A Boat Targa Top

Boat targa Top fitted to boat

Bimini Top offered as an option image
Or are you looking
for a Bimini Top?

Hi Fishing & Boating Enthusiast, I have had frustrated fishermen say things to me like :

“This is exactly what I have been looking for, a bimini top is a nuisance”

Are you feeling the same way?
Now, at last, a targa bar of T-Top for your boat for your fishing boat or tinnie. Fishing can get a whole lot better. 

Check out the features:-

bullet point You get much better access to the water.
       A bimini top has many obstacles in the way, but 
       as you can see here, so much more room to 
       maneuver when casting and landing that tricky 
       fish that drags you all around the boat.


  How can you do this………..... in this?

       room under cover, so you are not cramped or 
       having to crouch down.

bullet point Shelter from the cold driving so you can be DRY 
       and fishing.  Oh, I can just feel those freezing 
       fingers fumbling to bait the hook.  
       Why ever do we do it? 
       Well, now you don’t have to.

       the opposite direction.

       to steady yourself getting into or out of 
       your boat and plenty strong enough to hold a 
       cover and your fishing rods.

Or steady you while holding up the monster of a fish you caught – good one Craig & Billy.  In case you are wondering this cod is 4′ long (1.2 meters) and weighs 52.8 lbs (24 kgs).

bullet point  It Easily folds down for storage and traveling.

       No problem fitting your boat with a targa in the 
       garage or the backyard.

          1)   Unclip and remove the cover

          2)  Undo thumb screws and drop cover holder  
          3)  Undo wing bolts and swing targa down into 
               the boat

This takes all of 1 minute to do:

Is your day out fishing being made unpleasant with sunburn or messed up by cold soaking rain? Are you frustrated by rods getting tangled up because there is nowhere to put them out of the way? 
If you have a bimini top, do you find that the legs and straps take up most of the sides of your boat? And makes it difficult to cast or to get clear access to the water in order to fish. 

Or if you are landing that fighter of a fish, you really don’t want to be fighting with straps and brackets as well as the fish – the big one you don’t want to get away.

Then the Fishing Boat Targa Top has to be the best solution that covers all angles. You can fish longer – in the heat of the day when the sun is beating down, you can stay fishing because you have cover and convenience.

(Notice here that I have been making them out of my garage?)

If it rains or is going to rain, you can still go, or stay out longer when it does. The Fishing Boat Targa Top or Tinnie Targa Top, allows you take more control over your fishing – how, when, where and how long for.
The only question left to answer is Why – Why you are going fishing yet again? When your wife wants to know why :)  
For the avid fishermen, this targa is great, so much more freedom and more possibilities when you go fishing. One day you might want to sell your boat for another, but you won’t want to sell the T-Top with it. Would you like to have one of these on your boat? If so, we can help you with that. There is a great new ebook (electronic book) called :

Here is your opportunity to make up a Fishing Boat Targa Top for yourself, from a great DIY boat top manual with step-by-step drawings, photos and a video, so that even a novice can do it AND if you still decide not to build it yourself, we tell you who to ask and for what right price. 

PLEASE NOTE: Before you purchase this DIY package, bear in mind that you will need to have some aluminum welding done for you if you cannot do it yourself, and the vinyl/acrylic canvas sewn on an industrial sewing machine if you do not know anyone who has an industrial sewing machine. Do any of your friends do these things?  If not, not a problem, we will tell you where to get them done and how much you should have to pay for it too. 


Welding – As one buyer of this manual (Frank) found, you can fix it together with brazing rod (like soldering) that anyone can do with a cheap blow torch. One buyer did not like this method as it puts a lot of heat into the aluminium tubing. It’s up to you. 

Sewing –  This same clever buyer came up with another way of fixing the cover to the cover bow so that you do not need to do any fancy sewing.                                                                                                        Thanks Frank

Frank sent me some photos of his handy work:

And while I am showing you photos of what some buyers have made, here are some pics of the completed targa by John.
You will notice that John opted not to include rod holders on his set up.                                                                                         
Thanks for the pics John.

You notice that this John opted for rod holders but wanted a rear-facing targa:

So, what would you like to do? 
A couple of things to consider:
1) You could just pay someone to make one up for you, costing around  $2500 maybe, because they have not made one before and they will charge you plenty for trying to figure out how to do it.


2) Whereas, if you were to purchase this manual, you could make one up yourself and save about $1500.


3) Or, you could give this manual to a tradesman to make up a targa from, which would save him having to figure it out and save you maybe a $1000. 

Just present it to him and say ”I want one like this” and he can’t charge excessively for having to design and figure out how to make it. 

You can do it I know because I saw the idea and just figured out how to make them by asking questions, and you don’t even have to figure it out – I’ve done it for you. 

You can see from my photos that I have made these from my garage. By the way, – if you are thinking that this might be too hard for you to do, consider that I started in this field about 3 years ago, with my daughter’s industrial sewing machine, a few hints from friends, and a trimmer friend living 2000 miles away that I could ask some questions via email.  

I am of only average intelligence; even now when I make something I take way too long because I am not a whiz at things. Doing this type of work was to create an income because I was having trouble to get a job. So to quote an old cliché – ‘if I can do it, anybody can do it’ 

Why do I no longer make them? Simply because I am moving more into an internet business and away from manufacturing. 

And so all that is just a fraction of what you’ll find out in:
