RIBase
POLY bottle with SS holders for an "A Frame"

Does anyone know where I can buy a set of poly bottles with a tidy SS basket suitable for mounting on a A frame?

Hi you could try xs ribs (if you dont mind xs engraved on the side )
try here
www.xs-ribs.co.uk/info.php

We had them supplied new with the boat but cant think why they wouldn't sell them on their own. Look and feel god quality but early days to back it up.


Im sure many other manufacturers do them and no doubt someone will be along soon with other sujestions.
Hope this helps.

Hi K&S. I too am after the cages to suit the pains wessex polybottles pictured below. I have been looking for some time but without sucess. I looked on the Humber website but their price list details a set of cages plus polybottles for 225!!!


If anyone can point myself and 'two stroke mike' in the right direction that would be most appreciated.

The price on the XS site is 220 for bottles and cages / holders.
might be worth giving them a ring as i guess this is a 'fitted price' could be wrong.

There was a guy / girl on ebay listing just the bottles on ebay before xmas for 7.50 each if i remember right, as allready mentioned might be worth a search and the get a fabricator to make them for you.

Hi guy's
If you can give me about 4 weeks I should be able to get some for you. But cannot promise at this stage.

Just spoke to XS Ribs, they also wanted 220 for a pair of cages and bottles..... ouch!

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

Just a thought why not mould a set of holders from fiberglass yourself? reinforsce with say wire mesh from B&Q.
