Batfalcon,

You are obviously smarter than I thought, can we be friends now?

Pete

Posted for Peter Burns............

I was going to put it on the one with all the bother, the kid one. I am trying to show that I have taken steps to get somewhere to store my life raft, but it will also be useful to others as they have quoted what I feel is a good price, see below.


...........................

Copy of e-mail

Peter,

See the attached photograph of an employee welding a gantry. This is a smaller version of what i imagine you require. Your gantry will obviously be much taller than the one shown in the picture as the vertical height of this one is only 320mm, and is mounted on the top of the cabin of a Shetland. Your gantry as previously suggested will be approx. 6 ft tall, and 5-6ft wide. The vertical supports will also be further apart to facilitate stability. I hope this is what you are looking for. If not let me know, as we have the facilities to fabricate almost anything from stainless steel.

Regarding your bathing platform, I would not charge for design. This is a service we normally provide FOC. All i will require is a rough idea of what you may have previously seen and liked or photographs of what you require and we will customize the design to fit a Glastron.

Hope this ok. Any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

E-mail received from Hallmark Engineering re photo, may be of interest to others, Pete.

e-mail :-
From the pictures you have sent, I personally think a rear gantry would improve the appearance of your Glastron. Possibly creating a sports cruiser look, and creating the illusion that the boat was bigger than it actually is.

From your photographs, I estimate the gantry would be approximately between 5' and 6' high, and maybe 5' to 6' wide, mounted on the side of the boat as oppose to the deck. The gantry would be fabricated using 1" (316) mirror finish stainless steel tube, and the top would be mirror polished both stainless plate both sides to mount your fittings. The sides would also have stainless plate mirror polished to mount any lights etc.

If you required the sheet to be pre-drilled to facilitate fittings for a life raft you should provide us with the mounting brackets from all fixtures in order for ourselves to establish a template. I will return these brackets when the gantry is delivered. As the sizes I have estimated are approximate I can, at this moment only provide a ball-park quote. However, any fluctuation as a result of increased dimensions would be relatively insignificant. Total cost = 295.65p. Approximate lead time would be 3-4 weeks.

The bathing platform you mentioned would require more detail for me to establish exactly what you require.

We can design the platform on your behalf and provide drawings, for your approval if required.

I trust the above meets your approval and look forward to hearing from you soon,



Regards

Matiboy,

You've read my mind.
I'm expecting a new digital camera next week and I was thinking of this particular theme to post.
I mean a fully detailed photo galery, in order to guide anyone interested to build something relevant.

Oh dear, Flanker. Here's another sickening pic for you.

'appens to be of my daugther Mel and it was taken in 1980. She was 6 then and I took the snap while she was helming our small sailboat through the Panama Canal during a family circumnavigation.

When we felt she was responsible enough, aged 8, she was doing full 4-hour night watches in the Pacific Ocean while the rest of slept.

She survived and, like Wavelength, I'm now the very proud father of a grown up lady who has a 5-year old son of her own. Needless to say, his mum and I can't wait to get the boy out Ribbing soon's we get the chance.

By the way Charles, I was impressed at the way that young lad of yours was handling his SIB last time we were out with you. Bet Keith wishes he's started that early in life!
