Default Tubular Platform Who Makes Em?

I have a Velocity 260 that currently has a 1 Piece Fiberglass Platform (stock Velocity). I had plans to replace it with a powdercoated tubular platform. Well I hit something out in the lake last weekend and ripped a trim tab off. Well as the tab came off it took a nice chunk out of my fiberglass platform. So now is as good of a time as any to replace the platform. But I now need to find a place to supply me with a tubular platform....... Who out there manufactures custom platforms? Have you guys had any experience with these companies? Thanx in advance!!

I believe there was a manufacturer out of bay city that has built a few for the sunsation guys and was fairly reasonable (and local). there might be contact info on the sunsation forums on the sunsation site.

I havent heard of anyone around here doing them, but would like to know who if they are. I know a guy in the Lansing area that I believe builds them.

Extreme Marine is who built the platforms for Baja. As far as quality of construction, they are a work of art. The welds and craftsmanship are second to none, it's almost a shame to powder coat or paint them.

Doesn't "SickSation" on here build them? Or atleast a semi tubular version? He can be found over on the Sunsation site too.
