Atkins & Hoyle Ltd. Arches...????

Ignoring the hardtop/bimini section in the lower photo, are these archs too industrial looking? They claim that their arches are about 50% of a welded one (e.g. $5K for Wells).

I want an arch to support my Kato davits, hold a wind generator and possibly a solar panel or two.

I had a look at them at the Toronto boat show. I was interested as a hard top over the cockpit. I thought they were a bit clunky and over priced for what you got.
I was quoted $4000 to $5000.
Atkins & Hoyle in a Toronto based company I was disappointed.

Thanks OD, that's also my opinion. I will get a quote at the Miami Boat Show but they would have to be half that price to justify the "agricultural" appearance.
