who installs stainless steel hull bottoms?

Post by laroja01 » Thu Apr 03, 2014 12:47 pm

Im trying to get in contact with someone or some place who can supply and install stainless steel on a few of our airboat hulls. Polymer is constantly getting ripped off and having to be replaced due to rocks. Boats are used in big cypress and the keys for exotic vegetation control. I cant really find anything online. anyone have info?

Where he is talking about is pinnacle rocks. They stick out of the ground like monuments and are ruff to the touch and laugh at poly. That is the reason for the full wrapped stainless on the bottom of the rock boats.
