Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat
Jeff, considering that retractible bowsprits can take a tremendous load...why not a retractible bow roller? Something that would deploy out of the anchor "locker" or a clamshell on the bow, allow the anchor to come up and lock onto it, and then have the entire thing retract and lock itself down?
Isn't the entire concept of a "bow roller" as fixed hardware, well, somewhat overdue for a change by now?
