So a busy afternoon but it's all taking shape now!!
Put all the new parts back on. Fitted perfectly which was good.
Boat now sits a nice distance from the car and I've adjusted the heights of the bunks to go as low as possible to leave space for the engine leg
These get transported with engines down.
Have left alittle room for adjustment when I get an engine sorted.
The boat sits and holds nicely with ratchet straps at the moment but at some point before adding an engine I want to fit a bow snubber to stop the boat moving fowards.
I was planning on welding or bolting another winch post closer to the nose cone with just a snubber on it.
