Ok after fiberglassing the last few years the next project wont involve any of that.

So this years upgrade is a need to clean up the roof and mount My RAB lights. I have a local metal fabricator I plan to use but I need some ideas that will look good and mount all the junk that is up there.

I need to add the red light for night fishing, have room for 3 RAB's one forward and two facing back, radar reflector, two vhf ant. 2 gps ant. I'm thinking of some sort of v shape raised up higher than the raft. I also need to keep the total height below 16 ft for bridge openings.

Any ideas, thoughts????

That is a nice set up. I've seen her around on more than a few occasions.
I'm thinking about getting everything into one unit. The lights on the stalks are cool but my RAB's are pretty heavy.

Power coating was done by Action on L.I. 6 years old and no chips or peeling. The key is to drill all hold after completion 1/16th larger the bolts then use plastic washers to keep the SS bolts and hardware off the coating. The fellow is an artist and very resonable.

That is a nice one too! still not big enough to put all the lights on. I didn't think the bat wing style would work, but maybe it would on a larger scale.

Your fabricator will surely come up with something thats easy on the eyes and effective, let the master of his trade impress you.
