Here is a very poor pic under the cover showing the "swoosh" on the port side.

The attachment points on the A frame are just above the transom but is used what i assume are davit attachment points actually bolted through the transom and took it steady.

All seems fine

I have towed from the top of my Aframe which is rock solid recon you could pick the boat up by it!
But I have water skied off it without problem but once towing our large inflatable toy 84" diameter it dug in on me turning and just pulled the boat over till I fell out killing the engine with the kill cord! thought it was going to come right over on top of me but ended going the right way up, so no harm done just me a bit wet and the girl I had in the boat a bit alarmed
I don't tow toys from it anymore but use a bridle or my larger rib

That's a "Deluxe".

I'll hand you over to the Sr4 experts for the best way to fix a frame to one of them!

The current frame is bolted through the transom. More pics in a couple of weeks when i am back up to the lakes.

Thanks again to everyone for their help.
