Wooden Frames

Made for the elements. Designed for life.

Product Description

Our A-frames are made with Sapele, a wood that doesn’t move as much as others do. The Sapele is treated with Sikkens to seal and protect, though we can use another sealant if requested, and then it’s oiled. We do not use varnish.

The thickness of the A-frame at the front is 50mm, the bottom part of the frame is 100mm thick and the plank on the top is 50mm thick.
The cover is fitted to the sides of the A-frame with lifting dots or turn buttons, along the sides at the bottom it is attached with press studs to the boat and webbing straps to the hull. There are also webbing straps on either side of the hull at the top of the sides, and press studs down the sides. Press studs are better so as not to snag clothing.

The A-frame is fitted by drilling up from underneath so that the fittings aren’t visible on the base of the A-frame.
Optional extras include raised cratch woodwork and opening wooden windows in the front.
You have the option of two fixed windows, or two opening and two fixed windows.
