Make a Drawing of what you need and take to or fax to all local fab shops for a quote.

Most boat yards charge around $80 an hour, travel cost and metal cost. if you can design it and install you will save alot.

I bought some 316 stainless steel tubing a couple years ago. The prices I found constituted a leg, all by themselves. It was eye opening. caused me to revaluate my use of stainless over alluminum.

Dutch ,I think your misunderstanding my question - I'm not asking how to do it, - I'm asking if anyone has a recommendation on who to use, im looking to compare prices- in S. Florida

Yes Strygaldwir I likley will use Aluminum -ive already done a lot in Aluminum - but figure most shops who work with one will also work with the other
