Who can build me a new engine stand

Post by rowdy1 » Tue May 03, 2016 10:30 am

I need a new engine stand and seat package for my 13" Rivermaster w/ a 520 Contential. I would like it to be stainless. I have been trying to build one my self for several months but I have to many projects already. I know what I want. Call me if you have time to do it and lets talk about it.
I live in Williston, FL

I didn't look to see how big the 386 area code is, but it may help your cause to include your location. :wink:

Another alternative not far from you would be Dusty Burch, who is either in or around Gainesville.
In an earlier thread, Dusty Burch wrote:Give me a call 352 258 4910, I build custom SS rigging.

You made a good choice for having and A/C engine stand built.

That family knows how to build and set-up a fast running boat.

I went by and checked on it yesterday, engine stand is finished and seat package is over 75%. It looks great and is much lighter that the aluminum rigging that came out of the boat. I'm very happy with it.
