I went through this last year I just   googled radar aech a few co come up all around £140   all good until my   brand   new color radar   fell off while   out in a   rough sea     between us managed to secure it    but   scary lol   once   back home looked at what went   wrong   and     noticed   that   the   spot welds   had   broke on the plate   used to secure   the radar   arch if I was to do this job again I would buy the same arch but I would take it up to ivan   he does stainless for   boats   very   good aswell and get him to weld the plates on properly rather than just   being spot welded he is located   behind paulsgrove   shops   in allaway ave   his   work is spot on aswell will make you anything   out of   marine grade   stainless

I echo Rays sentiments. I also bought one off of ebay as a standard made item.
Very good for the price... There is no arguing that point, but imperative you get the welds strengthened.
I to had the welds bust on them,

I have just had a Radar Arch made, and I have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Oliver Taylor
So much so that I have asked him to make my bait table and coolbox holder.
Its really refreshing to come across a local specialist. (Based in Emsworth)

Oliver not only provides you with a quote when he says, but offers suggestions that make sense.
Im bowled over truth be told. So nice and refreshing to come across decent local tradesmen, who take care and pride and will get the job done..

If Carlsberg did Stainless Fabricators..
