    Default Know any Good but reasonable Aluminum Fabricators

    Looking to have a 3/4 hard top with a set of rails and rocket launchers fabricated to cover the deck of my Alaskan 240. Talked with Ben with Silver Streak so far, but a little pricey. Any others located in the Valley or Anchorage that you know of. Looking to get it done sometime between now and next spring.

    Thanks, I will check out all of them when I go home next week. Want to get a jump on it, maybe before winterization if possible. (Winterization, seems like summer just flew by way to fast)

    I wont even shop his prices, cause I've discovered from having other guys repairs fail and them not be willing to redo their work when it was proven to be substandard... its cheaper to go with quality first...

    I saw a fuel tank that Greatland fabricated for a friend's john boat. Excellent work. He was very pleased with the result.

    Default Alaska Airboats, LLC

    Been told to talk to them regarding aluminum fabricating about four times now when it comes to marine fabrication. Contact Leonard Haire at (907) 376-6183. I am not affiliated with Alaska Airboats in any way and have not used them but plan to for some planned modifications.
