Re: This stanchion base is good for anchoring,,,,

I don't see a problem as far as strength. Location? depends.

Re: This stanchion base is good for anchoring,,,,

No.

The welding between the post/braces and the baseplate is inadequate. The connection between the baseplate and the deck looks fine as long as there is a backing plate.

I would install an oversized centerline cleat for securing jack lines. Does double duty as a backup cleat for anchoring, towing, mooring, whatever.


A house is but a boat so poorly built and so firmly run aground you would never try to refloat it.

How about, I have good anchor points when working bow area but not around cockpit.
Installing some padeys around aft of the boat maybe better than run jacklines?

When you are reaching for something, you don't want to be un-connecting re- connecting. You should be able to get from the cockpit to the bow in one run.
