OK...I'm gonna 'Mod' this thread a tad.....

So, as it is Brians birthday today I guess there will be no progress on this build, looking forward to seeing more progress and still awaiting Les to phone me back  ???

Regards, Dan.

Yes Dan I will try and incorporate a towing winch system below the main deck winches as the winch setup on the Maersk  Leader looks very complicated to try and have this operational. Personally I donít do towing competitions but it is good to have it set up for towing if needs arise.
