A frame type thing

Evening all,

Has anyone made a removable a frame for their SIB?

I'm looking for something to basically mount a camera at the rear of the SIB

Previously I've done this with a single pole and a g clamp but the fact it was a single pole the camera was of centre and the g clamp rusted.

Ideally I just want a 'L' shape stainless pole which I'm sure I could source but it's how to attach it so it can be removed which I'm struggling with.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

i mounted a rib raider vhf aerial onto an aluminium tube, which was fixed onto the protruding bolts of the launching wheels with stainless wingnuts - easily removable and no extra drilling of the transom

A frame type thingy

Hi,

I started with SIBs back in the late 60s then on to RIBs so I have a good idea of what you are looking for.
My suggestion for what it is worth is: -

Your stainless steel pole that you are going to use, take it with you to your local engineering company or DIY store and get a short piece of stainless tube what your existing pole will slide into. Then slide the pole in until both ends are level at one end, next drill straight through both (this hole is so you can use either 'R' clip to lock them together when needed or pip pin or bolt and wing nut).

The next stage is to fasten it to your transom. I would suggest if you acquired the tube from a local Eng. co. ask them to weld it to a flat plate then all you need to do is drill the holes to screw it to the transom. If you cannot go the welded route then get two saddle clips or 'P' clips from the DIY store and again screw it all to the transom. Now you have the short piece of tube screwed to your transom slide the camera pole in and put your locking pin in ('R' or 'P' clip) and your job is finished.

Hope this helps!

Didn't the pole foul the tiller arm?

I fancy something like this also so watch this thread with interest.

Looks to me that the tiller of the 25hp is definetly going to be fouled with the depicted set up!
Fancy a VHF set up like this as well and with the front locker.
Is the front locker a home made?
If so how was it constructed and attached to the floor?
Looks cracking, wish I could buy something like this off the shelf for my Honwave 3.5 ae!

with regards the setup i had, the tiller was nowhere near it at full lock - i designed it not to! the locker itself was homemade out of marine ply and bolted through the front floor board. it housed the fishfinder, vhf, small gps, battery, flares, few tools, anchor along with rope and chain. having all the weight up front also transformed the handling of the boat as before it was near impossible to drive it on my own as the bow just wanted to be up in the air all the time
