I believe that Andy Hay made himself a hoop in carbon fibre a few years ago. Have a look in the library there might be something there

Thank you, but to remain "a classic" in accordance with the boat I préfèr a stainless hoop.

Stepx  -looking at the pictures I've seen of the boat, the 'original' Chuft sailed with a traveller across the thwart - the hoop is a later addition!

Thank you for your answer D. Actually it is to optimize CHUFT.

I had mine fabricated by a local metal worker for a crate of beer.

It is 950mm high, 350mm wide at the top and 450mm wide at the bottom. Made in 17/4 stainless steel 22mm tube.

Thank you for this precious help. I do not have more than a manufacturer has to find who likes the beer.
