A frame rope holder

Hi folks,
I am looking to attach rope-holder to my a-frame to keep the mooring lines neatly stored. Although there are many around for yachts for the stanchions I haven't seen any with the larger diameter required for an a-frame. 25mm isn't enough the a-frame it seems.

Has anyone found a solution to this?

Many thanks!

Not knowing the size of your tubing it is hard to suggest anything. If it is 1 3/4" (44.45MM) or another common size then plenty of clamps are available from wakeboard tower companies. From there you can fabricate what you need easily.

With A Double A-Frame it's simplicity itself...loop spliced one end of the rope then looped around the Base and threaded/looped between the two vertical posts from the Nav-Light holder to the bottom strut.... I see your RIB is 6m +....so chances are it is probably double??

I like my ropes away or in sight. I don’t mind a bow line tied on, but an experience with a rope also a hoody cardigan mean I like stuff away in general.

Personally i don't like ropes at the rear end, a failure in the storage mechanism can really wreck the day.

That said when they are stored on the frame a bungee with ball, as used in markets, does the trick.

cobra ribs have a neat system for this, basically a couple of opposing hooks welded to the A Frames about 14 inches apart. Very simple and effective, might be worth a look.
