Re: Anchor Snubbers Redux
I just ordered one, as it seems like the least likely to fall off and doesn't require a moving part, like the wichard.
I'm going to make a winter project to make a custom bridle. I'm going to dust off my old three strand splicing skills (been a long time) and make a long bridle that will go over the bow roller, down about 4 feet and back to the center of the foredeck. Then I'm going to splice in two legs, one to each side cleat, with a spliced eye to lay over each cleat. It will require some measuring, as the roller is not centered. Theoretically, I would only have to attach the hook fore of the windlass and lay the two eyes over the cleats, let out enough chain to take up the bridle and done. We'll see.
Something to do over the winter. If it isn't fantastic, I'm going back to the rolling hitch.
