Gives me a good place to hang stuff: VHF antenna, GPS antenna, horn, rescue throw line, nav lights, dive flag, and, eventually (I hope; gotta talk to my welder buddy) spearguns. Probably more stuff as we go on...

As mentioned there has been loads of threads on A-frames, I think they just look good on most RIBs, as well as providing somewhere for the VHF ariel etc, and of course to use as a leaning post when warming up the fish.

I've always assumed their origin on a pleasure RIB was us blokes trying to mimic the A-Frames that hold the self-righting gear etc on a serious RIB.

I think it's a matter of taste. I personally prefer them, as previously stated they are handy for mounting aerials, gps receiver, dry box's and summat to hold on to for thoses moments of releif

And as I have previously stated, the Osprey double A frame is the best in the business
