ChrisPort for'd and aft although aft is not started.  As they are today, normally the work boat would not rest on lolly sticks {-) {-)

Images and short video today.  The images show the port forward embarkation port, which does have detail but as its not illuminated its to dark to see. while the video is a 35 foot work boat, being lowered, it normally is stored in the flight deck sponson, and a parallel today is the current QE class stow boats the same.  The motor is not the final one but the actual one is same design, just more rpm, ignore the bits hanging from underneath, :}

It looks like you've made an excellent job of lowering and raising the boat with the speed of descent and on an even keel - super job with that mechanism - well impressed with it Bob  :-))

thanks Chris, the working features are very basic, a 2rpm motor with a shaft running the full width of the gap, and thats it , controlled by a on/off/on switch, keep it simple if you can, will take a pic later for you
