Re: Bow Anchor roller Installation

For the dam I simply used stiff cardboard and duct tape with a little Goop or something to keep and leaking out. I think if you prepared it right in thickness, leaking shouldn't be that much of an issue.

Re: Bow Anchor roller Installation

G-10 definitely the way to go. I can't believe two different people on this thread recommended gelcoating over epoxy. That's a recipe for disaster.

Re: Bow Anchor roller Installation

Have to agree with SkiprJohn, good quality poly cutting boards are very strong in compression, impervious to water, very inexpensive and easy to cut/shape. I have to do the same on my boat in a couple of weeks. I really thought about a nice teak block but then the poly is way less work. Also if you want it to blend in better, just glass it over and paint/gelcoat to match.

I used Starboard and 3M5200 and a weight until it cures. Been there for 8+ years and no holes in the deck. The Starboard takes abuse from the anchor well.

Re: Bow Anchor roller Installation

Going back and forth over the cutting board route vs the build a dam and high density filler.

Isn`t starboard and cutting boards the same? polyethylene?

Yea I think it is about the same. Just don't use slick stuff. The texture helps the glue a little I think, also keeps your footing...wet plastic is slick as you can get.

Re: Bow Anchor roller Installation

Here is what I`ve decided on for the roller.

Marine ply 1/2 inch doubled up to the correct height. Glass it all and mount accordingly. Easy enough and I can get all the materials from the marina/boat where I`m staying for little to no cost. Plus I have a 1-2 weeks to get it done since my mainsail is at North Sails for additional reefs.

Northsails( Stevensville branch) locally here on Kent Island, MD was also the least cost at just under $300 for 2 reefs plus inspection and they said they would repair any minor defects found in as part of the reef work for no extra cost.The other qoutes I got around the annapolis area was anywhere from $400-600 and would take at least 2-3 weeks. So if you are in the Annapolis/Kent Island area it might be worth a drive to come to the Stevensville North Sails branch.

Just my .02

Thanks for all the great advice and options. Sometimes I can over think a project.

Re: Bow Anchor roller Installation

When you use marine ply make certain you saturate everything in a resin sealer or glass over it. You don't want any water intrusion even if it is marine ply.

Good luck on your construction. I always use epoxy in my projects and never use gelcoat over it. I primer and paint.

kind regards,

No doubt and thanks for the reminder. Primer and paint for sure, no gelcoat.
