A frame storage

Morning all

Like most dive club ribs ours has two of the yellow flare boxes on the A frame. We keep flares, first aid kit, lunches, keys etc in them.

They both need replacing as they've gone very brittle. Does anyone;

A - have a couple going for less then the current 30 eabay price?

B - use a different system for storage as we'd be happy to try something else if it's an improvmenet.

Many thanks

Andy

Flare box holders

I have been searching for flare box holders too. Where on e-bay did you see them for 30? I can only find one for 60!

I'm contemplating making holders out of courlene fishing net and bungy cord. Don't know if this is feasible!? As long as the flare boxes pop out if the boat sinks and they don't jump out at every wave, all good!

I really must get myself some flare boxes for size.

I modified those on Aging Youths boat to fit his A-Frame and could easily knock some up quite cheaply out of Stainless steel strap for those that want some.

Gents, just spotted these 21Litre flare boxes at a rasonable price. Just right for mounting on the frames that you are trying to buy / build!

Hi
does anyone know a good contact for the holders that attach to the 'A' frame, I have the boxes but any sites I have checked out are asking 200 for a holder.

Nasher,

You could be into a good thing here. I could do with two flare box racks. Spread the word and get a order list going and name a price!!!

I don't think he's after the frames. Just the Boxes!

It is only the boxes that I need. A search on ebay under rib boats / accessories pulls them up.
