I've always said that I wouldn't mount an arch on my Crealock 37, but yours looks great. What I really like about it is that it looks like I can install my radar dome on it and still have room for a monitor self steering vane beneath the solar panels.
Looks like just what I need. I read that you had yous made at a VoTech school but wonder if you have any drawings or dimensions of it.
