Two other thoughts on Catalina 25 pop-top:

Catalina Direct also sells a pneumatic strut system, like the kind that holds your car's trunk lid up. Don't know how well it works, but would appreciate comments from users.

Some have taken those swimming-pool "noodles"--the 3-ft.-long extruded foam floats--and use them as bumpers under the pop-top, giving an extra couple of inches of headroom yet keeping the top safely down.
