Ships I've been on has had either winches on deck, or winch houses with the working gear on top, so this one I don't understand. Is it meant to operate in New Zealand waters, and winches therefore to be operated from inside these boxes? However that may be, the family outing that a launch seems to have been in old Blyth is truly charming. Did the onlookers even get inside the property of the yard? Regards, Stein.
