When I saw you had replied I thought you were also going to join the Ribnet / FVRH crew!

Yeah, I have thought of may options, including 2 wire pulleys and a trailer winch by the door! Design Jury still out, but will be checking the ground before the pushing until the solution is decided upon!

I've built a jetty in the driveway. Decided garden chairs are not the way to get in and out of the boat.........

3 weeks ago I was in plaster. Today I'm in compression and support bandages only! Seems that the bone fragment they saw was an old injury - one that I didn't realise that I had done apparently?? - and so they then diagnosed ligament and tendon damage. So I'm using a stick for some support but actually it is getting better rapidly. I do have to elevate it to keep swelling down but I can walk!



Soon be on the boat again

Ouch I feel your pain literally, 3 months since mine, still have an open wound on my back 5cm by 2cm, 1.5cm deep (was 4cm deep and wide). Had to have 2 further ops to clean out the infection.
I've still to get back on the boat, tho back on the Bike for the first time this week.

Hope the fusion sorts the issue.

Six weeks in and the boat hasn't moved - still under cover

Swelling mostly away except when I'm on my feet too long but I do have mobility and can walk without the stick

Going to the Doc tomorrow so hopefully I'll get the all clear to get on the water again.

Many thanks for all the good wishes and PMs


I'm hoping for a good September

I can recommend a remote controlled 12v trailer winch. I tried also "manual "versions but this works much better for me, as controlling/steering single handed the trailer during operation is so much easier with the electrical version.

I have this winch ATV - QUAD WINCH MG-3000 + WIRELESS REMOTE - Malagambe OFF-ROAD Guess its not that great quality but it does not cost much either...Anyway it has much more power than i ever was able to pull.
