Anyone else able to offer alternative suppliers (assuming that ashbypower are not able to help)?

Have a read of this (link) and ask the guy if he'll make you some. I haven't used him myself but they seem quite happy with the stainless gear he's making.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?

pains wessex box holders

I called in on Ribshop at swanwick during the week.
They had a pains wessex type box in the sales rack- so I said thats great but there are no holders available.
I was told they will have them shortly - sample/mark1 version away for build at present, I was told.

so give them a ring - the more they produce, in the first batch, the cheaper they will be for all of us.

Closer to home, there's a workshop making these holders (and A-frames) in Cushendall, Antrim. They're just across the road from Redbay Boats and make their s-steel fittings. Redbay sell the polybottles (bit pricey).

.... And to save the lads in the Kingdom a post, I'm sure Gaelforce Ribs do exactly the same thing too, only better......
