I cut, fit and placed my new Atlantic Towers radar arch today. With luck I should have it wired and fully installed by the end of the week.

The feet on the arch have pins, so it can be folded down to fit into a small garage. In fact, once the feet are properly installed the arch can be easily removed AND reinstalled in less than ten minutes. (Of course, the wiring takes a while longer.)

Jim, I'm sorry, can you fix the title so it reads "radar" arch?

Alkar, while posting my request for info on a wake boarding bridge, I saw yours on the radar tower. By searching the Atlantic tower website, I found their products specific to my purpose.

This website is the best!!

Kingfish, there are more photos showing the recent progress under the thread entitled "Dolphinite, awlgrip, etc...". I'm taking a few shots at the end of every day I work on the boat.

Barry has been kind anough to post my photos for me, as he has a place to keep them on the web. Unfortunately, for me, Barry will be unable to help me post for a couple weeks.

alkar,

That nonslip turned out great. I think you posted about it a week or so ago, but I can't find the thread.

Fine looking craft, whether "traditional" or not.

Alex - Looks great, and what is the inner/outer hull color? The arch is a huge improvement over the old one!

Larry, the interior and decks are a very light gray. The hull is a dark green. (both Awlgrip) I love the interior, but I wish that I had chosen something else for the exterior.

Thanks for the favorable feedback. I'm still feeling guilty about abandoning the classic restoration.

If I had more energy I'd be out there working on her right now...
