I don't know if they're Ribnet supporters but they're available on ebay approx 70 if i remember correctly?, search under flares or flarebox in boat accessories. You can do it 'on the cheap' with a couple of stainless U clamps & washers but you have to drill into the cannister.. which naturally will then need sealing!

maybe try your local 'sheet metal' workers?

I wanted two of these. As has been said, web prices are high. Local marina wanted about 140 ea. to make these up. Sheet metal place said 35 each based on a (very rough - I'm no techy) drawing I'd made and my leaving an empty container with them for a couple of weeks.

It's not 'mirror finish' stainless, but after 4/5 months it still looks good enough to me, holds the boxes very well, and at 70 pair I'm not complaining. Maybe the same approach where you are will work ??

Thanks for ideas. The ebay seller is none other than Barnet Marine - their version is here:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Boat-Box-HOLDE...634.m332.l1262

70 for that is a bit on the high side but looks cheap against the 127 for the rib-shop version.

Local s/s fabricator may be better way to go.

Any ideas on how best to attach to the A-frame (mine is 2" tube)?

Hi you can drill through the tube but stainless is substantially stronger than standard mild steel and the holes all a bit 'permanent' once drilled, a couple of 2 inch stainless U (exhaust)
clamps top and bottom probably the best bet? very secure and easily removed if required. Regards Al
