Light Jackstay Transfer

Between Stubbington and Shavington
Weekend trip to Sicily. June 1960.
Alan Walker
The Light Jackstay using fibre ropes and lots of manpower was tested for loads of 500 Lbs.
The Heavy Jackstay with steel wire ropes and auto-tension winches could manage loads up to 2 Tons.
Not a lot of people know that - or probably want to!
