Sorry, I’m in southeastern MA. I use ocean marine fabricating on Pope Island in New Bedford. Great operation if you can’t find someone up there.

Does anyone know where I can go to get a poling platform fabricated for a skiff?  In Mass.

What boat do you have?

I am in Florida for half the year and this is where a majority of flats boats are built.  If you have dimensions of the rear deck and the height of the transom you can probably buy one that will fit your boat. I own 2 flatsboats and there isn't anything mysterious about the platforms.  Let me know if you want some builders to call.  They buy their platforms from outside builders who do it for a living.

I think the prices in FL are much more reasonable since they are better know.  I feel like up here T Top pricing is applied to the smaller size poling platform.

 

Numbers I’ve heard in FL are around $1,200. Up here they are north of $2k, almost half the price of the skiff.

Nothing local I can recall. Blue Point is one I can think of out of Titusville.
