Shade for flats boats & skiffs ...

RNR-Marine™ developed the patent-pending Flats-Top™ to provide "Shade for Flats Boats"™. Currently, there are no top solutions for flats boats which can be used at speed and removed easily when not needed (beach umbrellas are often used, but must be taken down for the ride). Our goal was to provide enough shade for two people, while providing clearance for fishing and poling. We have applied for 3 US Patents and began producing the rigid Poling Platform Mounted Flats-Top™ in July 2010.

Finally, SHADE for your flats boat, which can be used at Speed (with some new Style)

Flats-Top Curved Flats-Top Curved

New for 2012: Improved mounts with quick-releae pins! (click photo to zoom)

New for 2011: We curved the front of the Flats-Top™ to improve the style and keep a little more rain and glare out when you're at the helm. (click photo to zoom)

We have various sizes and lengths (see specification below) to fit all Poling Platforms.


First Flats-Top Install on Hewes Redfisher 16 in 2010

Flats-Top on 2005 Hewes Redfisher 16

We installed the first Flats-Top™ (Long, Medium-height model) on a client's 2005 Hewes Redfisher 16 in 2010. It looks cool and our client (and his girlfriend) love it (and the shade)!

This client is a real "gadget guy", but had never found a suitable shade solution. He was elated with the Flats-Top™ and anxious to share his story in pictures.

The install takes about 1.5 hours with simple tools. We immediately took the boat out for a test ride and the top was very stable, as you'll see in the YouTube video below.

The boat trailers fine with the top in place and our engineering calculations show it to be safe (from bend failure) at well above 70mph, so we're comfortable with warranting the top at highway speeds.

Stand up to sight for fish and use the Flats-Top to lean on while fishing!

Lean on the Flats-Top Stand up!

Our first client quickly noticed two hidden benefits:

  1. the ability to stand at his helm while driving to sight for fish, and

  2. the ability to stand on the rear deck and lean against the top for support (when you have some waves for example).

Use the Flats-Top™ at speed!

We, and our many customers, have used and tested the Flats-Top™ on the water and on the highway since 2010.

Your beach umbrella can't do this!

2012: We are gathering data and working on a stable, universal design Console Mounted Top for 2012 that will mount/dismount easily to many small consoles.
