    Question Any welded aluminum boat manufacturers in Alaska?

    Thinking about a custom, long, narrow, deep, jon-boat.
    Are there any welded aluminum boat manufacturers in Alaska
    (preferably in South-Central AK)

    Thanx, Dave.

    Silver Streak in Anchorage (not the Canadian company). You could probably talk him into building you one.

    Greatland does a lot of open Jon boats for local guides. Your design would probably be right up their alley.

    Stop by Greatland in Palmer they are woking on a custom boat right now. I'm sure Gary would be happy to show it to you. It has a drop bow ramp and a sliding pilot house. Very nice work.

    Is there any way to get a pictures of this boat and its features? I don't think Gary is on this forum.
