  1. Rich

    All parts included, assembly was straight forward. Only complaint, bend angle on rear supports is different which causes uneven alignment when mounted on boat. Installation became more of a challenge. Really like the rod holders and net holder assemblies.

  2. Richard

    I cant believe I got all this for only $680 dollars. What a great value. Looks great on my Thunderjet

  3. Jarod B

    Here are the pics of my recent purchase Thanks Fishonsports I couldn’t be more happy with your product and service. Note to those who are thinking about purchasing a tower, make sure you select the right mounting configuration.

    Let me say to start with ” I would recommend this product to friends as a quality product and excellant value”.
    I recieved a river arch jr. for my 20′ north River seahawk in a timely manner and complete with all acc. under $900.Less than half of other ways to go.
    I had some isues as follows:
    1. The instructions ,well basicly non instructions sparse at best,.But the Guys on the phone helped a lot.
    2. I had trouble with the fit and discovered they had a gunnel wedge kit for $25 that compensated “supposedly”
    for the outward slant of the gunnel.Which after waiting for it and installing them I discovered it to be a waste of money and time all it did was move the problem non fitting legs to other problem non fitting legs.Even after loosening every bolt and screw i still broke several gunnel bolts tightening them down.Still not sure what I could have done to improve fit!
    3.A minor issue was I called in my measurements but still feel the arch sits a few inches too high but didn’t want to open a can of worms and start sawing off legs.
    3.2 of the large tube rod holders sent would not place with the radar pad in place so I had to send them back for the smaller tube rod holders and was charged shipping both ways.Minor I know! But this is a review!

    Very fast shipping , Installed in less then 2 hours Machine work was excellent Rod holders are a dream. great spreader lights.

  6. Brad Larsh

    really fast shipping and a quality product!

  7. Marc Buren

    Very nice arch for the money. There were a couple problems with it though. I own a 20′ Thunder Jet Luxor. Fishon Sports brochure showed a boat just like mine with the Jr River arch on it, which lead me to believe that this would fit well. One problem is that the round base that came with the gunnel mounts was too big. The other problem was that when the base was mounted, the sides hit the factory top to the point that it would need to be removed to accommodate the arch. I am a steel fabricator, so I was able to modify the arch tubing to fit and I fabricated new mounting plates. All in all, I am very happy with the arch.

  8. Scott B

    Put this arch on my Sarcraft MR220 Center Console. Installed easily, and is rock solid….. No wobble or flex even at WOT. Arch also folds easily, even with wiring for the lights running inside the tubes. I have made several purchases now from Fish-On Sports, and their customer service is friendly and helpful. Great product at a reasonable price.

  9. Sergey

    Very good arch. Very easy installation. My North River looks super with installed arch.
    Now your products are demonstrated in Russia.

  10. jim nelsen

    have had a lot of people comment on my arch, they cant believe the price when I tell them. quality parts made for an enjoyable install. I was very pleased that I didn’t have to modify anything, which made the install go smoothly. also the capt. package is a must for any fisherman. the adjustable rod holders functions flawlessly.

  11. Randy

    It fits the contours of my boat well. I did trim 4 inches off the bottom to make it a little shorter. In alaska we use rods with long handles so if the holder is too high it make it a bit of a reach. Everything fit well and bolted up nicely. Thanks again

  12. Martin

    Arch was easy to install and looks very sharp on my boat .Shipping was very prompt only a couple days to deliver.

  13. Bill Robillard

    Well built and fit very well on my 2007 22′ Alumaweld Intruder with Duraframe top.

  14. John F.

    Here is some pictures of my newly installed arch.
    This is my 2nd arch Ive bought from Fish on and I feel the craftsmans ship is great.
    This is a 20 North River Seahawk and it went on very well.

  15. Terry

    Thanks so much for the arch, fits perfect on my Thunderjet Luxor ob

    Great bang for the buck!

  16. Gregg Watson

    I called on a Friday afternoon. Arch was on my door step the next day. Quality is great. welds fit and finish are excellent. I would recommend this to anyone.
    My boat is only 18′ and it worked out well.

  17. Patrick

    Customer service was great. The arch is a straight forward install and fit the North River perfectly. Two person job unless you have a hoist. Best of all the arch folds down and I can store the boat in my garage, saving three to four hundred dollars a month for inside storage. My fishing buddies are jealous.

    Thanks again,

  18. Keola Hayes

    I got the Sport Arch and Visor for my 17′ Ali’i Kai and it fit like a glove. The shim pieces made all the difference. Total time to put the arch and visor on was almost 4 hours, but that was solo with no one assisting. Also, it took about an hour to take off all the packaging and sort the pieces out, so I guess it was really more like 3 hours set up time. Been fishing twice since and it’s been great. The weight of the products was not noticeable when handling the boat and it provided the coverage needed for 14 hours on the water. The adjustable pole holders, cup holders, net holder, etc were just the icing on the cake, all in all I’m completely satisfied and would do it again in a heartbeat.

  19. Mike

    Our review is that it was easy to install, the instructions were well done and it looks great on our North River boat. Thanks!

  20. Andy

    Stout and very well engineered and thought out product. Easy installation. It adds a lot of “double-tough looking sexy” to my North River.

  21. Robert A Wright

    easy to install and looks great. will send pix when I get your e mail add

  22. Mark Brechel

    I bought the Jr. River Arch but had a really flat Canvas enclosure so Fish On Sports suggested I use the Uni-Arch bends. It worked out perfect. I also added the Crab Gin Pole and love it. I get compliments on My new Arch every time I go fishing. My boat is a 20′ FishRite. If you would like pics just e-mail me. I recommend Fish On Sports highly.

  23. Mike Carroll

    I love the design of the Jr. River/Sport arch. Looks great functions better, at the price this arch cannot be beat!

  24. Carl & June

    Awsome product! Having used my tower over the course of our salmon season, I must say I am very happy. Being able to get my fishing rods off the deck to pull crab traps was the main goal, and to have deck lights for the very early morning trips is wonderful. I mounted my VHF and CB antennas to the tower and gained 2 feet of height. Installation of the tower was made easier with three people, and went well. The clamp system for the rod holders, etc., requires some time to get them “just right”, but after the first two, it gets easier. I have moved my net holder 3 times now and think it is right where I want it. Nice not having to cut it off and re-weld it and hope it’s in the right spot! I have encountered some of the fasteners coming loose after rough rides and make it a point to check them along with my other post trip checks. I just wish I could have got it sooner!!

  25. Bryan

    This thing is great!! Well engineered and bullet proof!!!!

  26. Raphael Cyr

    Really fast shipping and a quality product!
    Now your products are demonstrated in Iles de la madeleine Qubec

  27. Bill McKee

    As expected all is fine and looks good

  28. Bo Green

    Very well built and looks great! I ordered the Jr. River/Sport arch and it fits my Duckworth Pacific Navigator Sport perfectly. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for an arch.

  29. Jon B Duncan

    I put this tower on my 2015 North River 22 ft Seahawk. It was pretty easy to install, but there were a few details left out of the instructions. The angled wedges for the bases were the perfect fit for my boat. I ordered the Captain’s Package which is a great deal, and since there are already 6 rod holders on this model North river, I have room for 16 rods!

  34. Randy Baynes

    Very nice Arch great quality, my neighbor wow had an arch made for nearly 3k came by after I installed my river arch was really impressed and when I told him what I paid for it his jaw hit the floor. This arch is awesome and can’t wait to get my lights and radar. I ordered on a sunday and received it that friday and I live in oregon. Great product so glad I bought this arch.

  35. Kim Strieck

    Great product for the price. Got here quick. 3 nights after work and had it mounted. A friend recommended it to me. If in the market definitely check these out.

  38. Omar herrera

    Very well fabricated tower installation was a breeze and it looked like it was custom made for my Stryker
    I absolutely love it!! Thanxs!!

  39. Dave Godin

    I ordered the Jr. River Sport Fishing Arch with the Captain’s package for my Kingfisher Falcon 1825. Don knew the specs upfront for my boat which eased the order process and assured a proper fit. Delivery to Canada was extremely prompt. I was a bit intimidated by the install but Don walked me through the procedure over the phone as needed and the install went much smoother than I anticipated. The tower is a very solid build and I am quite impressed with the overall purchase, service, and product. Thank you Fish On Sports!
