Serious question on sr4 a frame

Being entirely serious, any pointers as to where I can get An A-frame for my sr4. Or a volunteer to make one at a reasonable cost.

Original rescue I think. Stainless transom supports not moulded.

We had this one fabricated and are really pleased with it. It's now powdercoated orange.

Hi mollers.

Looks super although mine is the wooden transom with two ss tube supports from deck to transom, type of sr4.

Did you make this or have it bashed up for you ??

Do you want to tow off it, or just somewhere to fit lights & antenna?

I had a tame fabricator knock it up. We could knock out more to fit deluxe decked SR4s, but would need a rescue deck at the workshop to get a pattern and dimensions off of it.

You could get away with a single hoop in that case, which would be easier (& cheaper) to design & fabricate. 1.5" OD stainless or aluminium tube would be ok for this, but 2" would look better (IMHO).

That was what I was really thinking of. There is one on eBay but is to small for outboard to tilt up under.

You would have thought that the amount if little avons still out there some one would be making a killing bashing these out.

Any ideas as to where ?

Hi biffer

A couple of months would be better than never.......

Please pm a rough figure and if you would need the boat down there.
