Thanks Sinker and Llion Thumbs Up

That's 3 dinghies and pull back cord sorted - I'll have a rummage tonight and look for some bits of carpet and I've got an old static we can cut up for handlines for getting in and out of dinghies.

Is it worth brining the drill for a few bolts for fixing handlines?

Hmmm.....bolting for hand lines may help, especially on the second chamber where the sides are quite steep. There are decent hand holds but not a lot of suitably sized slabs to tie off lines.

Excellent, I don't fancy getting that close and intimate with a dinghy again!
