Hi. Just wondered if anyone had any bright ideas about mounting an anchor
roller to the bow of the whiting 26" 1/4 I have just purchased. She use to be kept in a marina, and occasionally anchored from the bowsprit
I'm going to keep her on a mooring
so need a decent anchor
roller on the front. The pulpit and forestay make doing this quite difficult as you can see from the photo
. The prod quite easily removable.
1) Modify the pulpit to mount a roller between the stainless steel tubes as they approach the deck
. Would this be strong enough?
2) Moor her with some sort of bridle
. Could mount bow chocks and make a bridle
which then goes onto the mooring
. Might make it much neater??
Take a look at the picture below. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
