Ring your local metal stockist and give them the tube size of your normal bars and the length inside the racks, they are made of the same material. then ring Laser and buy the brackets to fix then to the normal racks. (Last I heard they still had the brackets)

Because they're after a ladder, not a nice comfy seat. Of course, the seat is a better idea, but that's neither here nor there. Anyway, look at something like a 4000- it has half-tramps for the helm, but leaves the space clear for the crew to nimbly leap out over.

i need almost 40kgs of lead (basically a small child) in my boat...

having baby bars means that if i weight them( once i have some) i can count that as some of my lead

i think u can get them off the class site. try emailing them. we used to use the baby bars and u do need it the jump is massive otherwise. if i remember rightly there was some kind of slider thing that went on before the racks went in the boat then that was pinned in place the same as the racks. and i think they are made of the same old lower laser section but a longer length
