Okay,

Lets think outside the box. if you need somewhere to pee. Why not carry a bucket to pee in that you can you use anywhere on your mighty craft, then dump it overboard. It also means you can have a proper A frame then.

Just an idea.

What I have done is fix a 6 foot alloy tube from the seat back on the rib mounting the VHF Ariel on top and mounts for a A flag. Just ran the cabling down the inside of the tube and right into the consul, does the job OK. and a hell of a lot cheaper than a A frame. Well it is until the wife finds out what happened to the centre pole of here Rotary dryer

What do you mean you have nothing to hold on to when having a pee.
Are you a woman High tower?????

Seriously, I find that if you just trail (your uno) it for several feet behind the boat, it does not make a mess with the wind etc. A lot of trouble reeling it all back in tho!!!!!

When I purchased my boat, it had been equipped with a mast about 6' tall, located in front of the transom and off to one side. It carried the antenna, and lights and had the advantage being lowerable (Is that a word?).

The boat had been owned by a police unit and they needed to be able to get under a low bridge at the end of their harbour...

I should add that they flipped this boat (5.9M), then flipped its successor (6.3M) and have finally replaced it with a 7.5M Hurricane with self-righting gear... I have come to believe that flipping RIBs was their standard way to upgrade a boat in the face of departmental budget cuts! Let the insurance pay for it...

Well, hey; can't say they're all that stupid, I guess. Seems to be working for them.
