With Brian's input I think my method will be to fit a short stub of tube just penetrating the mast for each light and insert a draw wire from something like a strand of bicycle gear or brake cable then fit the suitable length of smaller tube to each light. See how it goes quite soon. :-))

Ahh the Wirral I see !
I'm coming to Hoylake rugby ground to stay for a week or so this Thursday. Amongst other things I'll be trying to visit a Tug near Bootle  :-)

Well, she looks good on the water AND the sound reproduction invokes memories from watching the film - most entertaining - thank you for sharing. :-)

Regards,

Ray.

You will get that. Its worse with lead free ,You still get it with lead solder . I find pluming flux very good . When all the job is done wash the job in very hot soapy water and its ready for painting . I too have a available heat iron . I just get lazy and leave 450 even for small jobs

The boat was seen to drop from the car by a shopkeeper. I do not have the boat. I was just asking if anybody knew it. Other speculation is superfluous.

Thanks John, as I said I have no experience but I will follow your advice in future  :-))
I think temperature is the issue and having 480 degrees at my disposal has made it relatively easy so far but a lot of cleaning excess off
