Re: plans for arch / davit ?

Try Atlantic Towers. They have what they call an "arch in a box". It comes in several different sizes and configurations. Both sides are solid, with a adjustable middle piece. This is a very good product, and I have had one on my boat for 2 years. It holds 3 solar panels, radar, and has davits for my 10'6" RIB.

I highly recommend these guys. I have no commercial interest in this company, just a happy customer.

Cheers, Bill

Hi Doug, What size /type of tubing did he use and what finish?
