Hi Andre, thanks for your email re rear bench, sorry not to get back to you...we needed a framework base rather than grp as the Arctic has a draining deck. We've arrived at a neat solution.....
We don't have a transom well on the Arctic, and will attach to the a frame or on a cradle in the bow if needs be, but I have the opportunity to place a 12 man cannister (we're coding for 12 again as per the PAC) beneath a crewman only single jockey with a float away cradle. As per Jim's post we can get something fabricated locally, but I know I've seen something advertised previously..... Frustrating when you can't remember where!
Whereabouts is the red Parker? Will keep my eyes peeled as we move about with survey / hovercraft work
