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 !
