Will have a look when I get home, stainless pipes could be easier although the deck end might need glassing in if I use larger pipe.

I'd do it with stainless brackets and tube you could make the fixing plates on the transom larger to spread the load and double up as part of the anchor point for the Aframe

Hi


just a quick thought is that another potential concern is that you need to ensure that both sides of the brace's can drain in to the bilge pump area to stop water gathering and going manky .



or am i wrong ?

each strut tube is approx 630mm long with a plate tig welded on the ends.
thats the longest side of the tube measured, i cant measure the shorter underside.
if you want any more measurements like the height on the transom or the distance from the transom to the anchor bolt let me know. boat is in driveway so easy to get at.

Stainless it is, I would prefer glassed in knees but the pipe is easier.

What diameter is the pipe?

Thanks

Phill

Yes - there's no bilge pump well in a Searider.
He's using stainless struts now anyway, just as Avon designed them to be.
