New A-Frame by Marine Fabrications in Birmingham

Just thought i would post up pics of my new custom made A-Frame which Marine Fabrications made up for me on the day. Cant fault the customer service, i had to drive up from Swansea arriving at 8am and it was made and fitted on the day by 4pm, brilliant!! I was quoted 450 but after a couple of alterations at my request it came in at 500.

Well happy with it nice polished 2 inch tubes, great for the wake boarding/skiing i plan to do and i can hook up all my GPS and VHF antenna to it.

Well happy!

Rib is getting a bit of a make over before it goes back out this summer, so busy doing lots of work to it at the moment

Here are some pics

Marine Fabrications in Birmingham



Had some custom mounts made for the GPS to sit on the right, and the flat plate on the left is where my Antenna will be mounted, also plenty of room to mount my skis when not being used and I am sure i can mount my auxiliary engine somewhere too in case of emergency!











Thanks to Nick who lent me the design of the A-Frame to give them, was a great help.

Craig
