Mast or A frame

I'd like a mast or A-frame for my RIB to mount an antenna and nav lights on. Anybody know of any UK manufacturers?

Anyone got opinions of pros cons of A frames?

I'm in the same situtation; want one but can't find a resonably priced manufacturer.

Pros as I see them:
-Looks nice!
-Allows you to mount things high up and out of the way
-Provides storage for poly bottles etc.

Outhill do an adjustable single tube frame for 299. I did consider it but it doesnt look very strong....

A search for a frames will bring up loads of arguments for against. Basically, if you want to tow anything or wakeboard off it you want a double one bolted through the floor. If you just want to mount lights on to it a single one should do the job. Make sure the engine can tilt up fully under it and if you keep it in the garage make sure it fits under the door
