Land Wasser Schlepper WIP question

Hello,

I have a Bronco Late Land Wasser Schlepper in the weathering stages and I am having trouble finding out how the rope bumper attached to the hull. I know about the Tech Weave setup but I want to use the kit supplied resin parts.

What I am trying to find out is, what type of hold down is used to tie the rope cushion too the side of the hull. The kit has molded in standoffs that are just flat surfaces with no hook or loop. I want to tie the rope down properly and not just glue it to the side of the hull.

Does anyone have a idea what was used at the hull? Is it a loop or a hook or some other type of attachment? I cannot find any photographs of these attachments.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Barry

Barry,
The bumpers were tied to loops spaced down the sides of the Schlepper. Then the bumpers where the rope ties around them were tied off to the loops. You can make the loops from thin wire. Not sure how this will work wih the resin bumpers. I hope this helps. Regards Brock
