One question, though - where are the rocket launchers? Are those in Phase II, or are you putting in stealth technology? :pirate:

Mine would have to be only 1 arch since the idea is it would just attach at the transom. What is the biggest size tube you can bend?

I can even pay in Mnt Dew :D


Richard, I have the die for 1.25" pipe (1.625" OD) but they make dies for up to 2" pipe (around 2.5"). Sounds like you would want what I had on the inflatable also. I did not have the radar mount but did have my radio antenna, gps puck and a couple of pole holders on it, although that was out of mild steel.


Hmmmm how much are the dies? If I buy the ali tube and a die for 2" OD how much Mnt Dew will I owe you? :)

Dies for 2" tube run in the $330-350 range, for the tubing I would get 6063 alloy as it bends nicer and I dont have to annel it. Get with me in a after I get back from vacation and we can talk and c what all you want.
