Ski Pylon and Fish Station Fabricator

Postby Phil T » Sat Nov 02, 2019 9:43 pm

Ray Martin of Martin Marine Design can fabricate ski pylons to your specifications. He makes custom products for Boston Whalers and is well respected by owners for his products design and Whaler-like quality.

From the Continuouswave archives:

    Here is what the FISH STATION consist of..
    1. 1/8" thick x 18" x 8" Stainless Steel Sheet (bottom plate)
    2. 1" thick x 24" x 12" Whalerboard/Starboard (top surface & contoured)
    3. 5" long by 1" O.D. tubing welded to the bottom plate
    4. 1 Stainless Steel Quick Release Pin
    5. 2 Rod Holders (I believe made by Perko)

    The Rod Holders are engraved "Boston Whaler"
    Stainless Steel Quick release pin

    The Teak Cockpit Table mounts in the same receptacle as the Fish Station and the Ski Pylon. This Cockpit Table was also made in the white Whaleboard or KING Starboard. It is roughly the same dimensions as the Fish Station but folds out to give you twice the space.

I purchased the Fish Station from Ray earlier this year, and [I am] very satisfied [with the product]. [The fish station I bought is] almost identical to the specifications [above], except for no engraved "Boston Whaler" on the rod holders.

Ray adds cup holders to the tabletop, which come in handy. As with all things out of Ray's shop: highest quality and reasonably priced. And Ray is a great guy to deal with.
