A Frame Design

I have a Humber 8.5m Offshore RIB which I would like to have an A Frame. Firstly for extra storage/nav lights etc, and secondly because I believe they look good!

I was wondering what people out there have experienced and what worked well for them as well as looking right.

Look forward to hearing from you

Rich

I think Martini is down your neck of the woods and is a dab hand with a welder....

Not an A frame but I like light/VHF masts. Either two like my RIB hung off the transom or a central mast just in front of the Outboard. They do all the normal A frame does, lighter, take up much less space, cheaper and IMHO look better

First two are not the best pictures, but gives you on Idea on a twin and other two are singles.
