At some point I plan to put some mesh netting in the top part of the rack to make a glove, hood and mask store for when diving.

The top is held in by 2 bolts and a plate.

Attachment 118543.

With the top off it looks like this, although I hadn't finished fitting it when the last photo was taken.

How much can this cost?
Looks lovely.
Is it attached at the 2 touching points/plates with the jocky fiber or only the upper plate?

The cost was almost nothing to me. I was given the frame and the cushion is an offcut of ply with about £8 worth of foam and vinyl. The frame is attached by bolts through the deck and 4 M6 bolts to the jockey console (M6 are stronger than most people think). The cushion is held down by the front Bradley and bolt to the cushion and the rear plate to the frame. The steel plates were also made from offcuts. I'm lucky that I have a full workshop, lathe, drill and welding capability at home so can make stuff like this, although the frame would be beyond my capabilities.
