Default Custom tower

Hey guys anyone know of any tower builders in the Midwest? Maybe around the great Lakes? I'm in iowa and am thinking about having a tower made for my 18 center console.

Try Electroforge custom welding in Two Harbors MN, they do some pretty nice marine fab work.

Guess this begs a bigger question - why (given you're fishing lakes in Iowa)? I could rationalize if you're in the Keys with very clear water spotting tarpon or bonefish.

I do all of my fishing in the keys, out of Duck Key, but I live in iowa and that's where I'm working on the boat as well.

Now that makes a lot of sense! Great fishing there by the way. BTW does it make more sense to get a name of as place down there? I've passed a number of places in Islamorada and in Marathon that have towers and seem to specialize in them exclusively. You might be able to get one pre made down there - certainly a post on the Florida part of this forum could yield some good results.
