Our mast was made 45+ years ago, not sure if they would have my profile?

The shop by GCS marina sounds like a go, I'm also intrigued by the G10 though...

Re: Where to get custom metal parts fabricated?

It was not mentioned but the best choice for a winch mount is Inox V4A even on an alu-mast (or aluminium). And the masts shall be connected to the sacrifying anodes as even alu(Lot a) to alu(Lot b) will, under certain circumstances, corrode.

Aluminium:
not all alu can be "folded", it will break. So be very carefull with your choice.

There is no one better then Garhauer Marine. You will not beat their prices. They can make almost anything, and their quality is unbeatable. A very good powder coat shop off Wells Rd in Jacksonville. Google Powder Coat in Jacksonville.

Update on Anodizing.

Had Quickturn Anodizing in KY strip and re- anodize a hatch frame for me, great price, and done in days. Cannot speak highly enough.

Anodizing being very much superior to powder coating it's worth the effort if the item can be shipped.

Just so the info is out there/ here.
