Re: Handling Anchor/Rode with no Locker
Maybe. I would be worried that running anchor chain through a plastic inpection plate might get it pretty beat up. I'm in the same situation, and like others, will clip the anchor to the bow pulpit, and carry the rode forward. Maybe add a hawse pipe at some point.
Agreed. Plastic plates also weaken the area they're installed into because their frames offers no strength. A quick search turned up some stainless options although I wouldn't want to rely on any external tool to remove it.
