The stirrups are held open by having the plastic base to put your foot on.

I'm also unlikely to be out in very bad weather, or to push the boat hard enough to turn it over, with my kids on board.

Buy!, Buy! don't know the meaning of the word.

As mentioned It's an ongoing project.
Just a strip of 6mm hard plastic with a slot across the ends to thread the web through and two buckles to connect to the main web.
If the Plastic proves too weak I can easily re-make them in Aluminium.

When I've finished them I'll post a pic or two, but It'll be a few days.

Think you could use some orange webbing from lashing straps (I have plenty of these hanging about) looped and stitched - and add the 'nasher' foot plate in. Seems the best way to go go as it is very easily removable and stowable.
Would attach to console by running under the seat which lifts up for access.

thinking cap in place and light now on

my jockey bases are rectangular and are wider at the bottom, i am thinking of making a foot plate that will slide down to a predermined height, ie the size of the gap betwen the sides. it will be a u shape whith a strap to go round the back to hold it in place, it will be easily removed but when in place will be very firm as a foothold, also no holes will need to be drilled etc, when he grows i just replace the front edge with a bigger piece or just make a new plate with a bigger gap and hey presto all done

the stirrups sound good but i want something firm under foot for him to inspire confidence but also is very quickly and easily removed and stored

i dont think it will take much to make either which is a bonus, will post pics when done

naming decals now fitted

have my vipermax logos now on the side of the boat, these are fitted in a strip down the side of the hull which is around 13-14 cm deep. As i decided not to have colour stripes below the rubbing strake as the water can pick away at the hypalon so this adds a bit of customisation and uniqueness and makes up for the lack of stripes etc.

You can have custom Boat Graphics done to your own design in 10year anti fade lettering which is very high quality, I had these made by print solutions and they did the artwork as well which was cool. Really pleased with the results and quality.

they are contactable on 01420 80955, ask for Richard
