The continuous loop fairlead has been added to the midship deck bulkhead. I opted to use balsa parts rather than copious amounts of epoxy glue to hold it all in position. 3/32 brass tubing was used, the top tube will be trimmed a bit shorter post painting
The winch is bolted in position and the kicker well and foredeck are just resting in place. Although, it would be a bit tricky it is possible to remove and refit the winch from the rear access aperture. I just hope I never have to.
