That was made by Marine Fabrications under the direction of Osprey UK. It isn't their standard design, I wanted a tapered one (the parallel tube ones look too much like scaffolding for my liking, sorry DHD ) and also with mooring cleats on the frame to provide a secure mooring point at the stern which is not normally on the Osprey frames - an idea nicked from Redbay

The only thing I forgot to ask for was something to hang the ensign from but a couple of small SS eyebolts tapped into the tube at the rear of the frame should be ok - gotta have a Union Jack showing round these parts or else!!

Nice big cleats on the A-frame, good idea often forgotten about

Will you be getting DSC info from the Icom up on the plotter screen? I never managed it even though I get position info on my M503.

Damn 0183 I love Icom radios but which they'd get with the programme and start using nmea2000

You can never have too many places to tie a rope on in a windy country

The Digital Yacht AIS receiver on the A frame *should* merge the slow 0183 feed from the VHF with its own high speed AIS feed and stuff the whole lot into the plotter on the high speed 0183 input, whether it works or not remains to be seen but it seems like it should do in theory ... though it isn't clear from the Icom manuals whether the Icom 0183 feed is bi-directional or just an input to the VHF to get position from a GPS for distress calls (which I suspect might be the case - it would explain your problem). If that particular bit doesn't work I'm not that bothered as I will have the AIS data on the plotter, and nobody here really uses DSC anyway, if you sink you usually just call up Fishops and shout "heeeeeeeeeeeelp" on Ch16
