Thank you , couldn't find them on their online site but guess they don't list all their offerings

Thank you for your replies , both offerings although obviously purpose made aren't really what we were picturing , on a previous hire boat (cannot remember which boat sadly) there was a steel? disc with raised lip which the weight sat on(in) , looks like I will have to find a fabricator for one

I'm currently drawing up plans to incorporate one into the bow peak I'm making for Royal Tudor. I've got a collection of hardwood offcuts so I'm hoping to laminate a design and cut out on the bandsaw before applying my bowl cutter bit on the router. If I run into trouble I will be calling on a friendly local woodturner!

Are listening Wildfuzz? :naughty:

perhaps a suitably sized stainless steel dog bowl would do the trick.
