Actually if they are only charging $600 itís probably not a bad deal. I have drawn up a couple sketches for tank racks and sent them off for pricing and WOW the private fab shops are proud. I would give them a call and see what they have to say about towing off of it. When I talked to the guy at the boat show they seemed very helpful and willing to do about anythingÖ..for a price.

If you donít want to tow a skier off of it and keep the price down I like the idea one guy had on here about going to a muffler shop. They have the tubing and the equipment to bend it.

One more note on SS in pricing up a tank rack I was using 2x2Ē SQ tubing with .125Ē walls the stainless tubing was $12.00 a foot!

Well, to price the material, use someplace like McMaster-Carr to get an idea. The stuff is usually *much* more expensive than you'd think.

Well,

I finally went with the same arch as listed on Atlantic's site, but I am having Mike from Valhalla Marine construct it. It is going to run about $399.00 for the arch, 4 side mounts and a top mount.

I should have it in two weeks. I can't wait to get it installed!

That is a good deal on that arch. Since my RIB is pretty small I am limited in the amount of space behind my bench seat to the transom. But that is the best deal I have seen yet.

I hadn't plan on towing a skier... My two girls are 15 months and 28 months. Perhaps later on when they get bigger, I will move to a bigger RIB. It's more for navigation lights and rod holders.
