Fishing Arches

Fishing Arches

A “must have” accessory for walkaround and express style boats to 26’ or 8’6” beam the Atlantic Towers Fishing Arch weights less than 60 lbs. and is designed to fit over and around your existing fabric top and side curtains. A support for your antennas and gear, it’s also a hand hold when boarding or moving forward on the side decks. The fully welded port and starboard sections telescope into the center radar bridge. Wiring can be concealed inside arch and beefy mounting hardware allows removal for winter storage. Three different radar bridge sizes cover mounting widths from 54” to 96”.

Every Fishing Arch includes a standard equipment 4 rod rocket launcher across the top.  The rocket launcher is four tapered rod holders anodized gold, with a heavy duty welded butt pin, and full vinyl liner to protect your rods.

Every Fishing Arch includes a large (approximately 12” x 12”) radar plate, plus four 4” wide mounting plates which will accommodate up to six additional antennas.

Radar cables, antenna cables and other wiring may be concealed inside the frame

The Fishing Arch is mounted to your boat in four locations with our proprietary “Pin & Pad” mounting hardware.  These fittings have nylon bushings which help isolate any vibration in the Fishing Arch from the fiberglass surface of your boat.  The “Pin & Pad” fittings also allow easy dismounting of the arch (just remove the four 3/8” bolts) should you wish to store your boat in a building with a low door, etc.
