Let's see your A Frame then!

Please post pics. I'm looking for ideas on a 7m.

Thanks!

This is a slight variation (improvement ) on an Osprey item.

The forward hoop as a slight rake on it rather than the two being parallel.
The bottom brace (nearest the tubes) is best in tube rather than plate for purposes of hauling oneself out of the drink.

If you fitted a neat stainless steel cleat on that bottom brace, it would be a more precise copy of the standard issue Redbay A-frame.

Well, they do say that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery

Coincidentally I have also been looking at the Redbay design and wondering whether the grand I don't have burning a hole in my pocket would be money well spent

I really like your aframe. I saw it when we were in St Peter Port back in October, took a few shots as it struck me as very well designed.
