Targa's

Anyone know where I can get a light weight stainless, adjustable Targa ?
I don't want something that weighs tons as my rib is only 11Ft. Just enough to take Nav lights & a short VHF antenna. 25 to 30mm would be fine.

By "Targa" do you mean A-frame (or the think that usually sits at the back above the engines that people attach things to like lights aerials, flare boxes etc?)...

OK you'll find they are usually called "A-frames" on here although some people call them radar arches. You should be able to search here - but beware feedback on the folding ones is not great. There are usually adjustable ones on ebay.co.uk but if you want to ship it to Denmark its probably cheaper to get something made locally. Others have suggested exhaust places should be able to bend tubing...

Could do with a single upright pole. Have flats welded or bolted on to the sides to accommodate whatever accessories you need to mount, with a flat plate up top for the all around white. Would be fairly easy (compared to a full arch) to make it folding if storage/transport height is an issue.

They do flats that would bolt/screw to the transom then pole then square or round base plate for the top or a tee piece then two bases they fix with grub screws but if taking off regular I would replace with a through bolt at the transom end as you know stainless threads do stretch if over tight but loads of stuff not just stainless all boating kit good site and fast delivery.
Cheers

Thanks to everyone for the advise & tips, its much appreciated.
I have managed to find a source off stainless tube and various fittings here in Denmark. So the plan is to spend some rainy days in the workshop & make the Targa / A frame the way I want it.
