It's an optical illusion!!! The transom is radiused on the internal side so looks 'thin' in your photo, I am not aware of any problems with Humber transoms, maybe others know differently. The A Frame is a simple, relatively strong design, ideal for supporting nav lights, aerials etc. Much stronger double A Frames are also available.

never had a prob with a humber transom on any of the boats we have had and we do a deal of rough water training on them here so they get a bit of a pounding at times. The A frame as in those pictured has never been a problem but another one we have that is supposedly shaped to allow an aux o/b to fit in has a couple of welded joints where the vertical (sort off) bit meets the bit that curves over the tube. Those welds failed on both sides and needed a strengthening plate putting in when rewelded. I seem to think the later ones I have seen have a plate already fitted. If the frame is only there for lights, aerial and cos it looks nice they are adequate.

Those Humber A frames aren't the cheap to buy either.

Neither are the consoles compared to a "seconds" Barnet one.
A seconds Humber one was about 500 should have been 650, my seconds Barnet one was 150!
