I thought it was the A-frame itself. Or at least the bottom of it...

Yes that is a light A Frame made from Ali tubing and stainless steel, holds the ensign flag, horse shoe buoy and cables for fishfinder.

Fishfinders a Humminbird piranhamax 160, excellent bit of kit, used it yesterday and caught more than ever before.

I knew I'd read/see this somewhere! Spent weeks sifting youtube and google...

Anyways I'm up to the same hijinks... I'll cut n paste from my local forum.

Hey guys

I'm looking at strengthening my transorm on my sib, but not too sure about the forces. I've drawn a diagram as to how I understand the forces, effects and possible solution but who knows if I'm right.

Blue = Boat and motor
Red = Forces
Green = Tension cables to possibly help take pressure off transom

I'm also considering right angle brackets, 4-6mm alloy sheet added to transom and extra pvc over rubber transom mounts.

For a change google was of no help!

I guess my current problem is an addiction to horses...

Boats rated to 15 and thats a 25 2st on the back. The boat handles very very well with that on the back, but I have figured I'm not using the boat for it's intended purpose/design (and plan to tow a tube/kneeboard!). So essentially I'm trying to decrease the negative effects of my actions and keep myself alive and afloat.

Good point on the flooring. Brackets are definitely being considered, just trying to get my head around a quick release but effective solution and keeping the boat portable.Using a few of these ideas may be better than just one solution maybe.
