Very nice too..

She looks like a A1 craft. Happy & safe sailing in her.

By the way, were did you get that rather nice winch unit that fits on the back of the car - it looks like it could be a very useful bit of kit.

Thanks for your kind comments.

It is me

The winch is manufactured in a small garage, by a person who saw his jeep and rib go to the water, here in Portugal.
It is hand made, not a mass production.
As you can see I do not have a jeep and with this winch I can put the rib in the water safer, specially for that slips with high slope.
The big disadvantage is to take much longer time to put the rib in the water and to take the rib from the water, because is operated manually.
