Hawsepipe.


The slot allows you to close the lid without disconnecting the anchor chain.

Since your rode doesn't go through the hawse I'm assuming someone added a windlass, making that fitting redundant. It is a source of water into your chainlocker so if that's the case I'd remove it and cap it.

Thanks!

I assumed that the windlass and this hawspipe were both original on the boat, but I guess when things are 30+ years old, +/- five years is hard to tell [if in fact the windlass was added later]. I think I will keep it to run a second chain out if I need to.

When we got the boat there was a sewn sunbrella cover that was lost in a nasty beating leg a few years ago. It was held on with velcro. Making a new one would reduce the amount of water that could get in.

Chain cleat. Allows anchor chains to be stored in the locker and at least partially protects from water ingress.

A sumbrella cover is much more ship-like than what I'm about to propose, but these other, field-expedient alternatives have been tried and tested to keep water out on a passage:

1: Stuff a nerf ball into the hole (apparently this works very well)

2: Line the hawespipe with cling-wrap then spray a bunch of expanding foam into it. The foam will create a custom made plug but won't bond to the hawse because of the cling-film. You can also cast a pope or light chain lanyard in the middle of the foam plug.

3: Mummify the hawse with duct tape and cling film before a passage.

4: Stuff a tennis ball into the hawse.

Another idea I had was to make a sumbrella cover, in the shape of a cone, and sew it ON TO the chain rode. It would receive more wear and tear by going overboard but as a part of the rode it would never be misplaced and would always be right at the correct link to seat it over the hawse.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
