After tons of research I ended up going with "Whodat Towers" out of Washington State. I can not say enough about these guys. I could not be happier with the customer service and quality i received. They worked with me for a couple weeks working throgh designs and changes. Each time a new drawing to review. I ended up with a remote spot light (golight stryker LED), LED lights for the back deck, moved my moor light to the top of the tower, installed a tow hook for pulling the tube.

    I decided to drive down from Calgary and had them install it. Totally worth it.

    When i have better pics i will post them

    Nothing better than getting something custom no matter what it is...imo. Looks great and crosses off all of the wants in one build.

    Looks real good, they do nice work. Was there any problems with customs having the work done in the US.

    Yeah yeah, it's nice, but did you get out fishing for tuna out of Westport?

    Not at all. Easy Pezzy lemon squeezy. They were not to concerned about anything. Even the extra wine I declared.

    Very nice, looks great on the boat. That will compliment the Arsenal well for next year.

    I am told its Anodized aluminum. I am told the only maintenance is to wipe it down with WD-40 once or twice a year.

    Oh man,,,,, fair question... I looked at it hard & was back & forth. The truth is I didn't this time & I have some regrets.

    All I have left to do is install a kicker motor & I will have my list completed for going into next year. I will wait until spring to put that on. (unless I find a good deal in the mean time).

    That's the same pricing I was getting locally for a basic tower with now lights or options. Had I gotten a standard tower similar to what I was being quoted locally I would have been close to 1/2 the cost going to Washington even with the exchange. Minus fuel lodging you would still save ~ 35-25%.

    thanks !
    yes they do really nice work and have talked to them as well....lodging is covered as sister lives across the line so that's always a perk shopping south of the border.....
    like your ad on's , that's a real nice setup now !!

    Love it. Was on the phone with Tim last week literally specing out this exact setup! Right down to the tow pin.

    Curious to know price and your trip back across the border...pm me if you don’t want to post that!!!
