Airboat Cages

Postby CenTexAirboater » Wed Jan 14, 2015 2:39 pm

Does anyone know of a shop/person in the Central Texas area that is capable of bending hoops for a cage build at a reasonable price. Or what would be the most desireable way to make some yourself? :fishing :violent1:

I know someone who bought hoops for livestock trailer tops and made them into a cage from tractor supply

4'x8'x3/4 plywood cut out the size arch you want, make total width on wood 4-6" less than final cage width, mark top center of wood and center of 20' stick of stainless tube , line up these two marks and roll it around ,works best if you can clamp plywood down on a flat table slightly larger than plywood , makes beautiful hoops!
