Apparently not..he's lowered them... And to quote the immortal Snoopy— BLEAH!!!

Look at the rise of the bow. Line might rub the fairlead if it was mounted any lower.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
