Re: Loooking for bowroller suggestions

Looking at the picture you supplied it looks like moving the pulpit stanchions around would not be a big deal .

Re: Loooking for bowroller suggestions

I think so too. Then getting a fair lead would be the next challenge. I really want a windlass in the future as well.

Re: Loooking for bowroller suggestions

Thanks for the vote of confidence. I keep forgetting that it wouldn't be a boat if there were off the shelf solutions

Re: Loooking for bowroller suggestions

I vote YES for an electric windlass and all chain. I made this switch before I went off and lived on the hook for 4 years. In so doing I really got my anchoring chops down and much of the security is the chain rode. Anchoring is usually preferred to picking up (and paying for) a transient mooring. The whole anchoring thing is a bog part of cruising and you want a reliable and bullet proof system and technique.

Obviously this will be a bit spendy. But PLAN for the whole shebang and do it in stages.

pay attention... someone's life depends on it

Re: Loooking for bowroller suggestions

Build one that fits perfectly out of 1/4" plywood, take that pattern to a foundry and have it cast in silicon bronze or aluminum. The foundry I use charges $8/lb. for the bronze (have'nt purchased aluminum castings in years). No other charges. For something roughly that size it would take me a hour or so with a grinder to dress and polish.

Re: Loooking for bowroller suggestions

Here’s an off the shelf product which may interest you:

https://stainlessoutfitters.com/prod...chor-carriers/

This is very much like the one I had on my boat. Its three point attachment makes it incredibly strong, and easy to fit to boats like yours.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.

Beauty thanks! I might be able to check them out at the boat show next week. I'll brace myself for the price tag.

Stainless Outfitters do excellent work. Shouldn't put much more than a $2,500 dent in your beer budget I might be low on that estimate since the new owner took over.
