It certainly looks the part.

After being in Matts boat and sitting on the wingback seats Im toying with the idea of adding some to mine. Only because I can't afford those luuuurvley Ullmans.

[QUOTE=kerny;684186]Thanks A1an, that's what Maxi as well as Chris Caton suggested so that makes 3 of you, so maybe that's the way I will go. Mike Whitham here I come [/QUOTE

Mike could glass in a couple of transom boxes if they'd be any use for anything else and perfect for fitting the frame to?

I have got someone local to to the glassing in, but that sounds like a good idea.

Had the A Frame feet glassed into the deck today......

6 layers of 2 ounce matting then covered with surface matting then gel coated, just need to source some battleship grey gel coat now to match the deck.
