Custom Welding

Welded aluminum boats have become predominant on the west coast, especially in the commercial realm, but also more recently amongst other user groups. Consequently, to be a leader in the Custom Rigging world you have to be able to do Custom Aluminum Welding. Rod's Power & Marine has a fully equipped off-site Aluminum Welding and Fabricating shop. This allows us to do all the necessary fabricating in-house.
