Did you ever get your A frame sorted? If not, I have used Precision Fabrications Ltd in Chrsitchurch. Very good 01202 474406
Good advice from people, will try a bit of grease when I refit. No still waiting on A Frame as the replacement was completely shite, have gone elsewhere now plus had other issues to content with on work done along lines of when one item done by someone else has meant Iíve had to redo some work or its caused other work needing to be done due to lack of quality control or poor workmanship.
I now only trust myself to do work on my boat. 8-) Still itís been a learning experience having to put right lots of work done on the boat by others myself, in fact I would highly recommend people stripping their boats down somewhat as you learn a lot and then can put back together with care and attention. Reckon itís another month before boat back in the water.
