Just pee where you are - you've got a bilge pump, haven't you?

Well, whatever you do - if you have high tubes like I have, don't try peeing over the side - a little bit of chop, and you end up peeing over the tube, which runs down over your shoes!

I had this made out of 3 inch marine s/s - cost just under 700quid and is suprisingly light. Made by C&B Marine in chichester in under a week without ever seeing the boat - I just supplied basic dimensions/drawing and they did the rest. C&B: 01243 511273

That looks very nicely finished... in contrast to the Humber A-frames which look awful - their "brushed" finish looks like they couldn't be bothered to finish and polish the stainless properly like most others do!

If possible, try and get some cleats on the frame. RIBs are pretty low on attachment points and it looks far better to have the ropes properly tied off, rather than just looped/tied around an expensive frame...

IMHO

I have just aquired a double ribcraft a frame and its really frimsly. By contast, my double osprey one is seriosly strong;I towed a rib in a few weeks ago and it didnt flex at all. No way I could do that on the ribcraft one.

They're not made for towing thought!

Well not normally anyway... you should always tie to deck fitting/towing eye on the back of the boat - they are normally secured a lot better!

More of a manufacturing question, but I've made a few things for my RIB out of SS but always dread polishing out the weld temper marks. Is there an easy way to do this, do the professional welders use some sort of acid treatment to get a good finish?

Yep, just that. My stuff is nitric acid which is held in a paste and applied with a wee brush.

If I don't come back with the name today, give me a reminder.
