Holy cow!

The first guy i contacted about fabricating an arch quoted me approximately 3k for aluminum, and 4k for SS!

DANG!

Ever seen an arch made from PVC?

How much stuff do you need to mount?

Perhaps you can get by with a single post (or perhaps a couple of posts.) Less material, and simpler mounting.

Might also try a muffler shop once you get plans together; they'd probably be a lot cheaper than a marine fabricator.

That is outrageous! You can put a down payment on a new rib for that kind of money. One that has an arch already.

I would sell you mine, but I don't know if it would work on your RIB.

I had a pair of frames bent up by a race car muffler shop and then laser cut & bent the sections which link the two to give more strength
Less than 500.00 the lot

Thanks for sending the link.... I ended up winning the auction and now I have to explain to the wife about $400.00 being spent in this economy....

Yikes!

But I can't wait to get it mounted and wired!
