The stern and bow fenders are secured with chains covered with rubber sleeve to protect the ship she is pushing

I used 18mm diameter rubber round section and grooved it to take the straps to secure it back and once cut to length I used Gripfill (adhesive) to stick it back to the model the cable ties are just looks they don't take no tension in anyway.

I'd like to forgo a bit of building time this weekend and visit Balne moor for a plunge  8)   What would be the best day considering it's bank holiday weekend?


I'm not sure who might be there at the weekend.  I've other commitments on Sunday and Monday but will probably be there late morning/early afternoon on Saturday.

Having day dreamed at work I have an image of a paxolin winding drum
I can get the right shaft diameter by using a number of K&S precision brass tubes inside each other then tapped for a grub screw  O0

Just home and straight into it  {-)
Yes the continuous rotation servo runs in both directions  :-))  So I'm sure I can cobble something together
Rotation speed is excellent  :-))

Edit. Connected to elevator on receiver gives right stick up and down in and out with auto off

Works rather well  :-))
I'll mount it between the drive motors so the line goes up a brass tube above deck enough to avoid water ingress and then over the top of the model drum winch.
Just a reminder for readers the main hatch will be battened down with eight ss countersunk M4 Allen screws. So the tow hook if used will be secure  :-))

I usually work 4 days 37.5 hrs but I'm working tomorrow at short notice which is worth 14 hrs in the pocket so can't refuse. So unfortunately I'll not be up for Saturday but will be gluing the first part of the main deck on. Have fun

Days but my boat's not ready for Saturday as I can't do anything on it tomorrow.
If the 3000:1 motor turns up I hope to sort it and mount it so all the deck can go on.

Whilst on that theme what do we use for tow line? and I imagine 3 metres would cover all circumstances?? with most of it on the drum.
