I think I bought it from Overton's back in 08, I don't remember the size, it's sunbrella fabric. I've debated about making it shorter so it looks better, but it's nice not to have to duck to walk under it.

How does it do @ ski speed? I'M going with a pole because no tower looks good on the older PROSTAR 190s an don't want to stress my hull.

Here you go. Much cheaper than $700, rack included.
