Hi there, I just want to inform those boat
owners who are considering installing a boat
arch/tower for attaching accessories such as solar panels
e.c.t.of a recent experience I had installing one. I ordered through a company called Atlantic Towers located on the East Coast
for what they call "Tower in a Box". Sounds cheesy eh? Well, to my dismay, it was true to the name...the shipment arrived in such horrendous shape and had I been present to accept the shipment (the shipping
company conveniently dropped it off when I was at work), I would have returned it. So, my lesson learned...never order from a company whose product comes in a box! To make matters worse, not only did I plunk down @$2500 but an additional $500 for S&H. You would think for that shipping
charge, they would have used bubble wrap and styrofoam to protect the arches. Instead, there was only one layer of bubble wrap on the ends of the arches and the rest wrapped in a thin layer of plastic wrap. Oh, and they attached one end of the arches directly to the cardboard box with zip ties. I guess the product is ok if you live in NJ and like aluminum
as a support structure.
