Stainless steel

Anybody know a good fabricator for SS work. I quite fancy adding a small bottle rack to my RIB but Humber want best part of £300 for one and it isn't precisely what I am looking for anyway.

I am just about to get three new back rests made up plus one repair from a company in Ayrshire. Still a few miles to Oban but a bit closer than the south coast.

I should have them in the next couple of weeks and I will let you know of price and quality.

I can generate AutoCad drawings for it so distance isn't really a problem.

Got a ballpark figure from hallmark which I am very happy with. Custom built to the exact size needed. Just need to measure up and make a drawing now.
Anybody know a good place to get a seat base and backrest made? The bottle rack is going to double up as a second seat when not diving.

Is it the fibreglass base you want or the pads upholstered?

I have a single seat console which seems smaller than other boats I have used. It is a bit of a squeeze for two to jump on when we are not diving and just going for a run.
My intention is to get a small 4 bottle rack made piggybacked onto the console and either use it as a bottle rack when diving or have a removeable seat that clips on top for go cruising about.
I can now get the frame made and will need to find a somewhere that I can get a bespoke seat pad and backreast made. i don't want a homemade job as the boat is new, would rather get a seat pad made from original materials etc
Best of both worlds.
