Looking for someone to build a solid grass rake for a 16x8 diamondback. Not looking for anything groundbreaking just standard solid grass rake with a step. For a reasonable price. Any suggestions?
Diamondback is almost 2-2.5 months out and is $3750 :shock:
Floral city acted like they didn’t need the business but was the best price I’ve found so far $450-500 depending, however their fit and finish on all there boats is looser than a two dollar *****. After they acted like they could careless I wouldn’t do business with them again.
Anyone have a recommendations will be greatly appreciated

Did you try Alumitec? May be Gene Babbet.

I built my own, did a cardboard mock up, cut my pieces then had a buddy weld it for me. Certainly not perfect but it does the good and cost about 300.00.
