Boasun Woman's blouse that has "Captain" tastefully embroided on it.
Along with full cold weather gear for winter sailing.

SVPrairieRose New anchor, rhode and windlass would be an awesome gift, but not exactly the same price range as a scanner. You mentioned ais and VHF. Toy could ask for a standard horizon radio with ais (receive) built in for less than 300 bucks! So cool. Happy anniversary!

Yofy A new anchor and rode is a great idea. And if you don't have a windlass I'd be definetly thinking about that too.

(I don't get anniversary gifts. Maybe I'll send this link to Manny )

solman55 Not to thread jack but where can I get a bow roller like that? My boat has the same setup in front so I have been trying to figure it out but that piece would be perfect. Thanks

Also maybe he wants to clean the boat for you and do any brightwork you have haha

Craig Smith Dulcitea, you can confirm bow roller fit easily enough - send me an e-mail and I'll provide you with dimensions plus full size patterns. That said, I almost wouldn't bother - 90% sure a Rocna will fit on the above bow.

sailingdog Dulcitea—

It depends on the bow roller and how it is positioned relative to the boat's bow and all. I have a Rocna 15 on my boat and it sits on the bow roller just fine.

If that photo is of the bow setup on your boat, I think the Rocna would fit fairly well, as it is designed to be used on a bow roller and I think that one would have enough clearance for it.

Here's a modified version of that photo with an outline of the Rocna and Delta anchors, scaled roughly to fit.

remetau My wife and I just had our anniversary. I got her a new electric toilet. She got me a new manual bilge pump.

Dulcitea By the way, that is not my anchor!

Great idea Sailingdog! I need to beef up my ground tackle. Can you tell me whether there are issues with the Rocna not fitting bow rollers? I've (tried and hopefully successed in) uploading a picture of my bow roller. Can you tell if it would work from the picture? Thanks for your sage advice here, and in the many other threads on the site.

P.S. Denise: My boat is too small and I am too tired for a cabin boy. But, thanks for the thought!
