Yes, as nice as yours is I think it is just a bit cheeky of me to ask him to make one that complex.

I will update on my refurb thread when I've got the frame made

Be aware that not all SR4 transom supports are in exactly the same place if you get one made to a pre-used design. I get the feeling they were very much 'glass the pad in then see where the hole needs to be.

The bolts on the deck for the transom supports are passed through a plywood pad then the whole pad is glassed in, which is why there's a raised bit on the deck round the transom support bolts. They aren't always in exactly the same place, which means as the transom support stainless rods are a premade part, the holes in the transom for the supports to bolt to aren't always in exactly the same place either. Hence one a-frame may fit one SR4, but might need a bit of wiggling to fit another. If it's something beefy that won't flex a little you could have an issue.

not a clue Henry, they made and fitted the seat backs, console grab rail and A frame at the same time and I just paid for it as a finished job, so no idea how much the materials were, just very happy with the finished job and would recommend Marine Fabrication to anyone

Found a materials website but I am not sure if I use grade 304 or grade 316 stainless steel. Can probably answer it myself by just choosing the more expensive one
