Found this aluminum store on ebay...not sure if prices are good or not, but looked cheap to me.

Tempress has a great selection of high quality hatches, deck plates, seats, rod holders and other fishing gear. I have two of the hatches and i am very impressed with the strength and quality!

Aluminum Angle, stainless as well as most other metal products and shapes
https://www.metalsupermarkets.com/
The prices online are the best I had found and if you are lucky enough to have access to a local store/warehouse like the one in Tampa, you may find the price to be even lower. We did on all the aluminum angle we needed for our rebuild. No minimum order and cut to size so you only buy what you want. They were great to work with.

Starboard - available in several colors and "cut to size" pricing with free shipping on orders that exceed 3 sq feet.

While I know there have been cautions about Ebay stores, I have used these folks twice and have been very happy with the service, price and delivery.

Wire harness components

Post by PSG-1 » 20 Oct 2011, 21:26

If you want to make your own wiring harnesses, and you want weatherproof multi-pin connector kits, may I suggest:

https://www.diyautotune.com

Look on there for the "weather packs"...these are the multi-pin connector kits, just like you see used on professional auto and marine wire harnesses.

seasprite wrote:I purchased my used 18 foot Jon boat and restoring this winter. Since it was a used boat it has seen its share of beaching. All my other boats are semi V's with nice thick keels and I wasn't concerned with beaching. The river I fish has poor launches at best (no docks) so you have to beach each time you go out. I'm a guide on the river so I'm always launching and removing. The 18 footer has 4 keels which are pretty worn. I searched the web for keel guards. A few companies wouldn't recommend using their product on a Jon boat. Until I found Keel Shield https://www.keelshield.com KS Marine Product
These people went out of their way to accommodate me. They sent me a sample of keel guards, and easy to follow instructions, great color selection, and its a life time guarantee. They also make skeg guards, bow guards. I highly recommend them, they stand behind their product!
Just to add to the above info, because my ramp eats keels I've had to replace the KEEL SHIELD four(4) times. So far, I've only paid for the first one. They are great people.
