The solution to this is to install a bow eye about 6 inches above the waterline, with a snubber (1 size smaller than your rode) permanently attached to the eye and brought to a forward deck cleat. Dave Gerr designed this for Imagine (I know, a motor cruiser, but it's still a very good idea!)
Whoa. Great idea! And this from a stink-pot owner? So simple and elegant too. This solution could keep me well away from the danger areas of the bow.

Much food for though here. Thanks. I will chew on this a while.
