    Re: 40'' Seaplane Tender, new build Z8 99%
    Hi Red, can't really tell from the old Super 8 movie grabs my friend did, but in one, it looks like they just had 1 rope tied over the dinghy to the grab rails. Probably held in place by chocks as well. Think the dinghy was glass so would be quite heavy. Thanks for making me check the pics as I found I'd suffered a senior moment and painted the dinghy the wrong colour,๐Ÿ˜  (should have been yellow)๐Ÿ˜ฎ have no Idea why I did that. No worries, back to the paint shop today ๐Ÿ˜ด. Can't do much at the moment anyhow due to the weather, (raining on and off and too windy) and stand varnish is slow to dry. Nothing major though. Just made and painted the spurling pipe and hooked some chain to the anchor ( will be able to feed chain down through pipe and pull it out to anchor the boat) and stained and waxed some jute string (candle wax and
    shoe polish
    melted in a tin on stove) for a deck coil. Glad I'm almost finished as I have a heap of work to do to the house over spring/summer, (paint roof, re clad an external wall etc) JB
