One of the things I like best is the radius of the rake matches the new radiused Rigid light bar. Very cool. That bar should give you a very wide beam.

Thanks guys the boat is starting to come alive, pics from today when I dropped off the hub plates , most folks think the complete boat is welded but only the bottom and grass rake lots work go into these hulls. Now the time to hand lay all that wire for cage is just crazy, then all DB poly is riveted

Drop off couple things for the boat and man DB was slammed, my boat being torn apart after sea dek mapping and heading to the paint so I grabbed a pic of the shop, new builds, delivery of huge commercial boat, repairs, hulls all over the place. I forget that DB works on any boat and heck even got a cool step hull rigging for BBC, tour boats you name it then outside more waiting to come in, so if they do not answer phone right away I know why place is packed :thumbleft: NO job to big or small at DB
