SR4 A Frame

Well, the boat is ready for the water and the only thing i need to get now to finish it off is an A frame.

So can anyone recommend a good off the shelf frame or any opinions on the design of frame i should fit...double frame, size of tube, material etc?

Would like second hand but hard to come across.

Cheers guys.

I'd suggest you fit a simple 2" OD stainless single frame. It would suit the rugged looks of a SR4.

If you don't have access to a mandrel tube bender, then you can use 3 straight lengths of tube and a couple of 90 degree pre-formed bends. Some 3-5mm flat plate can be used for mounting lights, antennae, etc and for fixing plates to the transom. A decent welder/fabricator would be able to knock one up for you in a couple of hours.

I can post pics of 'one I prepared earlier' if you like.

gArf only moved to Peal, so when people ask where he lives, he can openly say what's on his mind.....
