Yes Gopro HD.

Noticed the A frame flexing a couple of weeks ago, I think it started after i fitted the dome.

Humber said the guy who fabricated the A frame has retired and if it was a problem with the welding it would have failed long before now.

It was Ok before I added the dome so I was thinking about taking it off and fitting to my next boat. I'll just have to spec a more substantial A frame on that one.

Waiting for Humber to get back with price for new destroyer and ocean pro, black hull and black tubes with etec or suzuki. I was also thinking of going to Redbays open day on the 16th to look at there used boats.

I do like humbers reply, so what if the lad who did the welding has retired, it's the way the frame has been designed that has led to it wobbling more than a hooker's knees on a Saturday night!

So is it true to say that Humber A frames are not intended for supporting Radomes?

our single A frame, carrying no load, of similar design broke where the triangular plates are. Doubled the plates up, one each side of the tube and its been ok since.
