Charleston, SC -- RNR-Marine announces the "T-Topless Gear Loft" storage option for its T-Topless and Montauk-T-Topless folding t-top line for center console, rigid inflatable and Boston Whaler® Montauk® and Dauntless® series boats.

The T-Topless Gear Loft laces under the raised area of the T-Topless or Montauk-T-Topless frame providing storage for up to 6 life preservers (PFDs), towels or other gear overhead. The loft is made of open-weave PhiferTex® PVC-coted polyester by Phifer, Inc., allowing gear to breath and stay dry and mildew free. The loft closes at the front and can be rotated forward with the top for storage.

"The T-Topless Gear Loft answers boaters' requests for storage, providinga place to store gear like life preservers and towels, thus freeing up valuable storage compartments for other gear such as tackle, lines, food or coolers. The Gear Loft is a great solution to the limited storage on the Boston Whaler® Montauk, our most popular boat," said Ross Johnson, president of RNR-Marine.

The T-Topless Gear Loft is now available for $99 (includes lacing and instructions) on RNR-Marine's web site: and takes about 20 minutes to install.
