A couple of years ago we lost a cover overboard because the chain broke. I couldn't find a replacement so a fabricated one out of sheet brass and some solder. It wasn't too hard and it looks OK as it weathers to a nice patina.

I checked his parts listing and he shows this item: DKPIPOVL Oval Deck Pipe for anchor chain - SS AA56005 40.00 each.

Ah - I hadn't considered that. We know of a couple of 32's in the area. We'll check them to see if it's the same.

I read somewhere that Minney's bought out surplus hardware (much of it from Chatfield, New Zealand) from PSC when the factory folded out in California. You might give them a try Minney's Yacht Surplus - Home

We are in the marina in NC, working on THE LIST, and getting ready to leave for the Bahamas. Here are two photos of my hawse pipe cover on the bow of Irish Eyes.

This is the closed cover with the starboard anchor chain headed down toward the bow.

With the cover opened you can see the eye bolt that I added and the bungee cord that keeps the cover closed.
