Storage

Flare container baskets. Is there anywhere that sells these ready to be welded on off the shelf?
I talked to a local welder and he seems to think they were available and would be cheaper than fabricating them himself.

I may be wrong (usually am) but I vaguely remember Humber having them on their price list.

I haven't got one to hand though. I would also expect they wouldn't be cheap.

Cheers

Mike

I haven't bought them from Humber because 1. they are too expensive and 2. for that money I want them properly welded on in the place I want rather than clamped on too high up.

Give STAINLESS DAVE a call 07979766341. He made me a stainless bracket for my spotlight which did the job and was cheap.

Be careful if you are welding to the A frame as the only time someone did it for me there was so much heat in the A frame the nav lights cabling melted! It turned into a bigger job than intended

This is why I wish to do it now when I have the boat cabling in bits to fit a bilge pump and a spotlamp. If I don't do it now then it will be refit time next spring before I get another chance.

If you do get em made might i suggest that you have them so that the pots are stored horizontally or on an incline.

I did intend to get them made leaning back in line with the frame but this was only for neatness. Why indeed is it recommended

I have had a few mates who have lost the pots from these cradles as they have jumped out. Its less easy for this to happen if they are Horizontal.

Aslo they look snazzy

Try these people on Monday, I am sure that if they don't do them (which it looks like) they will know a man who can Loads of useful other stuff anyway which may be if use to someone.

Tub holders

IBS have them in their catalogue (sorry no cost) www.ibs-boats.com. I have one of them (the round ones) and works well picked it up at a boat jumble for £5 . So if its not needed in a rush have a look round.

Had to give the idea a knock on the head for now. I need to ghet the boat in the water again for next weekend so I just had to make some bolt on brackets for the floodlight I am fitting and the tubs will need to wait for the next refit at the beginning of the Spring.
