Do you still have the lifting eyes on the deck or have they been removed?

In a similar situation to yours i have had a stainless piano wire carbine hooked to the two lifting eyes inside on the deck - then you can maintain station, clip on to the floor slider and then drift back on the tide without having an overly long bow line - then it is easy to pick up your normal top gear from your shared buoy?

Anyhow sounds like after a couple more times playing you will have found your comfortable approach - enjoy and blue seas!

Hi guys
Pics look great Im Jealous. Now to the buisness in hand I need help urgently.

My 100 series bottom leg exploded and lost the gears and prop and the casing is shattered.
I have to find a second hand bottom unit with prop to get back on the water.
Please can ask around and e_mail me with some result if you can.

Have a great time on your boat.
