Default Bluewater arch

would this scare you, having your arch held up in the air by 3 5/16" u-bolts? the clear coat was not dry so the straps around the legs are just there for safety.

Not at all. Be surprised at how much strenght bolts have. Looks are decieving.
How many engines have you seen pulled using a plate bolted to the intake carb mount using the 4) 1/4" bolts? Let alone the aluminum intakes.

Did you go for a ride in the boat. The one that I went in wobbled like crazy. I thought that I needed a hard hat to sit on the bridge. How did you like the awesome build quality??

I built that arch and awning from scratch. I hauled it to the boat running 80 mph down the highway and it did fine.

here are some pics of what I had to start with.
