Default Bow Rails

Anyone know of a good shop that can fabricate custom bow rails in stainless steel? Looking to add some to my recent purchase, which the factory didn't offer due to the trolling motor.

Aqueous recreational equipment in Harrison Twp. right off 94 and north river rd. They did most of stainless work for checkmate in the 70s - 80s or longer. The kid took over dads business. Be prepared for sticker shock, the sign in the shop reads Shop rate is a $100 an hour with the 100 penciled in.
Last yr I proved to be to much man for my drivers side bolster and it began to fail, This spring I ran the base over to them, they did a good job repairing a tear in one leg and manufacturing two gussets and welding them under the seat mounts. I figured 200 to 300 and of course it came at 300, again good work at an exorbitant price. Plus the old man loves to talk about the good old days of checkmate!

I'll give them a call before summer is over. No rush on this job, and I'd really don't want to see $1000 disappear right now....

There's got to be a few other places, but my Google search isn't showing anything in the tri-county area.
