    I just got my new boat and I want to have an aluminum rod rack built on the back. Does anyone know where I can get some aluminum fabrication done in the Clarksville area. I want to built almost an exact replica of "Daves Rod Rack" in the BOC library. Any help is appreciated.

    Ernest I don't know about Clarksville but there is a large machine shop in Paducah Ky. He does a lot of Auminum work. Ingrams Sheet Medal and Machine Shop. He is located on 2nd or 3rd street. I don't have his phone number on hand. If you need this let me know and I will try to obtain it for you.Just Send me a PM.

    You need to talk to "Michael" he fishes the Cumberland frequently and has the most awsome/professional rig I have seen. He and his uncle, I belive it was, built it. A very nice set up. Mike has plenty of other good ideas on his boat as well.

    Ernest, on Kraft Street there is a place called Langford's Welding and Fabrication. They have welded my pontoons for me. Might give them a try. There is an aluminum fabrication place in Nashville. I'll send a PM for that one.
