OK good thing I asked. This I most definitely missed in the manual!

I will re-read and figure out where to go from here. We are going to blow up the dinghy soon and start makeing dinghy chaps. We will need to launch the dinghy and put the engine on it to worm it up We were planning to just leave the dinghy on the fore deck to take measurement's etc for the dinghy chaps. I guess it is never easy but we will get it done.

Let you know what I find out,
