Just to reiterate my point take a look at tcwozeres pics posted, he's had to mount his A frame on the outside of the transom, this makes the point of least resitance lower down than the top of the A frame, if a loading was applied to the top of the frame pulling it back then i'd expect the frame to bend over swomewhere between the fixing points and the top of the transom, if however the loading was pulled forwards towards the bow then the point of least resistance would increase and the tube would bend over the top of the A frame.

Sorry tcwozere just using yours as an example as you posted some pics

np, it's a fair observation. I would have liked the frame inside, except I was limited by existing fixing's, and the bilge outlet. Plus the inside of seariders curves into the transom, adding another limitation.

tcwozere its a fair point and i dont really see there being any need to mount the frame inside the transom if your only going to be hanging a flag and some lights of it as you've said, until some one or somethings hanging of it your not going to suffer any problems.

Thanks for all your comments guys,

Having a small boat space is at a premium, especially as i need to get another seat across the back.


Thinking i will go the the largest possible guage single A frame, as for shaped over the tubes, im not sure yet. thanks for all the offers from local people about viewings, i hope to take you up on them when this damm rain stops!

Howard.
