Jef, the modifications were made by our local FP distributors, EC Marine
, here in Australia
. They came up with the concept
, which I really liked and went along with. I have asked them to give me the technical details which I will post here once I receive them. They have also made some simple but very handy mods, such as putting a hydraulic strut where the anchor storage
is, which holds the lid up even with wind
and chop. If you like I can take some pics of those mods and post them here as well.
JC, I have attached a broader view of the solid SS rail. It is really useful as it holds the BBQ and solar panels
. I can attach my rod holder(s) to it. Also, it seems to provide greater safety
astern in that we are holding on to a solid ss rail.
