Can't get my head round Dan buoys.
Do you mean the oropesa floats?

Dan buoys look like large fishing floats(The white objects aft of the Carley floats on my model). They are used to mark the swept lanes.

Oropesa floats are the large floats, like aircraft drop-tanks, used to hold the minesweeping cable.

Hi Niall, I see them now.
I was looking at the pictures on my phone in low res.
I was looking for Dans stowed upright, but I now see the cans
of them stowed long the guard rails.

I can then get more frets made. If anyone would like more information on the frets(and some resin castings) could you please PM me with an e-mail address and I'll e-mail a .pdf file with details of the frets.
