Liferaft cradle jockey seat

I remember seeing a stainless liferaft cradle (mounting canister vertically) which doubled as a base for a jockey seat....

I can't for the life of me find it or anything similar now.... Has anyone seen one /anything similar on their travels?

Thank you.

Hi Dan,

On a commercial rib you really want the liferafts away from your passengers but at the same time within easy reach for your crew. This is what we do providing you have an engine well. The frame is fabricated out of stainless steel and we then bolt on to it the universal deck cradle which I get from Ocean Safety. Poole Seasafari have the same arrangement. The red Parker is now in your "neck of the woods"

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

Not so sure where exactly but somebody sooner rather than later will spot. Hardly to be missed

I believe she will be in operation from March

Best of luck with your new rib especially as there is a bit of Parker there
