That's a bit too much of a Generalisation...and certainly not true of the A-Frame makers I know this way... Who are amongst the very best anywhere!
At one SS fabricator local to me I recently saw a bespoke 100% handmade cradle/dolly for making/fabricating Alloy Hulls!...i.e an EXACT copy of a widely known proven 7m Fibre glass Hull....of which several have been produced for the defence industry.
Can you imagine the tolerences and precision that requires?
Compared to that an A-frame...ANY A-frame is a complete Doddle !

Thats good news, but guess the Baystar helm still is 1.4 cu inch, so at least there is a difference in turns lock to lock to the Seastar 1.7?

See attached concept drawings I've just put together..

Hi how much would one of these SS sinker pot cost to make for the bay star helm pump?
