yes they are very useful for all the above mentioned things , but all can still be achieved with a well designed pole for the addition of ariels , they are a pain when you have photographers onboard , they are useful for attaching life buoys to.dont like the flare boxes on them as this does create drag, they are useful for selfrighting bags as the only place to attach them, i guess its a bit like bull bars on a 4x4 if you like em fit em if a pole will do the same job fit it instead, think next rib we get for the school will have a light pole and lights fitted to the consul.

Ashby for a dive boat is different and I agree with you.

Tim as always no argument there. Re the new boats we are thinking to go the same route you say. Is a cheaper option for starters.

Brian we are 4 people here debaiting the issue and reading the posts. We too think that an A-frame is quite usefull for ceratin uses i.e. dive boats and apart from the high the cost of putting one up we haven't come with anything else.
This is the reason I've asked to get some more ideas.

MANOS, Quite agree, you've asked a very sensible question and judging from the responce some good answers are coming back, and yes cost justification is difficult, however a lot of people do seem to follow the heart, cause they look
I see numerous ribs with A-frames and nothing mounted on other than Lights!!

Regards

Brian
