Could do with a mobile version for some of my boats. It looks brilliant, is it a permanent fixture.


Fair winds and calm waters,

Yes it's bolted down . It's unistrut welded together ,and trolley with castors running in groove .cost about £110 to do it yourself .( perhaps I should patent it ) might try electric winch later

Great job! 👍 Did you need Planning Permission? 😉
Would probably take me 6 months to a year to get a "Nein!" from the German authorities 🤔

Good Afternoon Doug,
I think it's fantastic!
I could use one at the pond.
I sometimes take my tug to!

Hi Ed, Me too for my 4 to 5 foot warships!
None of us are getting any younger 🤔
When my Dad reached 80 he used to say 'If I have to bend down to tie my shoelaces I look around to see what else I can do while I'm down there!' 😁
BTW; rest of the bits and materials for my Sea Scout 'Jessica' reno. were DHLed to me today 😊 so now sorting out ready for the final onslaught! Nice warm sunny day for working outside 👍
All the best, Doug 😎

Good to hear you received your parts.
We're having a heat wave here, I'm not keen on going out side. to spray my last Barge. Guess I'll wait till the heat wave is over!
