I'm about to replace the pipes/caps that the anchor
chain/rode passes through from the locker to the deck
. Not sure of exact proper term for these fittings.
The ones I have now basically just a bronze flange with a cap that has a hole cut out one side so the cap can be put on while the chain or rode
is still deployed.
The problem is that that underway there is no "easy" way to totally seal them up.
So my first thought was to just put a PVC fitting through the deck
with a screw on cap, but then it occurred to me that there would be no good way to put the cap on with the chain out. I've seen on a website where one guy put a screw plug
into a pipe that passed the deck but then I wonder about how long that will last with chain dragging over those PVC threads.
Anyone have a good answer to this problem?
