Atlantic Towers Arches Holding Up Okay?

I'm fast getting to the point where I'll be removing the old dinghy davits and hard top on a Catalac 12M, and I'm thinking of replacing it all with a combination of an Atlantic Towers "tower in a box" arch, which I will tie in with some longitudinal rails spaced for the 56 x 21 flex solar panels instead of sunbrella or fiberglass hard top etc. I'm working out the designs.

I know I've seen a number of cruisers come through here with the arches from Atlantic Towers. thought I'd ask if people are in general okay with them. I hate to pay the shipping and import duties from NJ to the Turks and Caicos, but I suspect I can still get a better deal that way than having a local welder make one up from scratch. Y'all happy with their products so far?
