Bear in mind, that life rings vary in diameters & thicknesses. I think the featured P/E ones a little under-scale for Patrol/Rescue vessels. They would be dandy for Commercial/civilian use. To attach, use a dab of Future, slide the teeny ring on and leave it alone! C/A glue overpowers little details like these.

This one is double punched from plastic card. I punch the center hole first, then center & punch the diameter.
These I like for the bulkier rings a Man might toss a ways during a rescue op.

Does that help?

These are the places you drill for the bollards, and placement of the boat deck ladder. Forward, ever slowly, but forward!

Base coated the island for the USCG Instructions. You get the big island and a bonus reef/island in the kit. It looks like the first few TLAR Island class WPB set customers will get painted Bonus reef/islands in their set!
T'were a "Spray to Black" morning here on the Dam Cold Prairie!
