RBF notes: Hopalong, Kapuskasing, ON, July 7th, 2006. Hopalong has a stern deck winch, small but unique. If you look closely at the Hopalong photo you'll see that it's big time altered! Notice the water line on her is about 4" below the deck...scary in my mind! She had added on ballast tanks on the stern hull to balance that huge rake she had out the bow.
