Well I finally finished welding, painting and mounting the new radar arch yesterday. It was alot of work, but WELL worth it. I'm VERY happy with how it turned out and it fits like a glove. :thumb: Adding one more rod holder to each side and need to wire the light up to have it 100% done. I made it out of 1-3/4" exhaust tubing.

Looks awesome Nate! Damn yoopers are crafty:thumb:

Now get that thing out and give us some of those great keweenaw bay reports i have been hearing about. Seems like guys are doing better out of KB than they are out of southern lake michigan ports. I wish it were a little closer.

I agree, that is an excellent job of fabrication!!!

My only concern would be the exhaust pipe as a rust magnet.

I made 24 rod holders out the same stuff and have yet to see any rust show up. Even after a season with the boat in a slip. I had the radar arch powder coat primed and then painted over the powder prime. That powder coat seems to seal up that steel pretty good.

that looks just awsome, ready to do one for me?

I wish I had time to make a batch of these. All in all it wasn't that bad of a project. The hardest part was finding the time to work on it.

Thanks again guys..........
