OK...gottcha ref the pot.

Ref the foredeck stringer, its made of laminations of three pieces of spruce, so is pretty stiff and the transverse beams are 1/8th ply. On advice from Frank I don't think that attachment to the keelson will be necesary. However, I wont rule it out if you think it is.

The winch is going starboard side as close to the fin box as shown on the plan, and with the drum above deck.

D:..sounds good....but maybe on the next one, as this a bit of a learning journey this time.
Just epoxy some 100 pound Dacron or SS wire from the stringer to the hull, better to be safe than sorry.
