pblais, thanks, would love to see more cd30 ideas. We have a bunch here and they have a great set up, but they are all singles, I'd like a double. Sounds like I will have to have one made. My idea is a roller mounted on each side of the sprit, but what will that do to the entrance of the rode..sigh. Will start making sketches, and of course, I will be constantly designing it in my head. Another idea is staggered single rollers to accommodate two anchors on the narrow sprit.
You all are great to listen to what must be a eye glazing topic! (unless its your own bowsprit
Thanks again
Erika

You don't need to oil the back side. Oil is a UV thing not a preservative issue. I would wipe it down before the sealant is applied though. The boat side may also need some cleaning. Try to clean off all the residue from the old sealant. They make adhesive remover. Nasty stuff but it can remove 5200 residue if you have any on the deck. Clean is the word for prepping for sealant. Once it's mounted you can use what ever finish you fall in love with.

I would also decide on the bow roller before mounting too. If you need some long horizontal holes they can be done straighter off the boat. The wood work should be completed, then you dry fit, and finally mask off the boat put a lot of sealant on and then finalize the mounting. I would then bed the roller once it's completed.

Hi OG,
I'm thinking a saddle out of stainless with a roller on each side. On each side of the roller have a vertical plate or cheek maybe 2" larger than the roller and enough area to place a pin to capture your ground tackle. That old roller looked pretty scary to me - in any kind of chop the chain or rode would pop off and then you'd have a fine mess.
By the way that is a very nice piece of teak and it sounds like it's not plantation teak either with the oil content. I have teak envy !

Good Luck & get that boat out under sail!
Randy

We don't want to wait until it is all installed to see it.

The Teak "pin up" is in my bowsprit project album. Please no drooling, its too embarrassing. Besides, I have drooled enough for all of us .


Randy, I am going sailin ASAPBIC (as soon as project bowsprit is completed). The roller you are describing is what I am thinking of making. Have you seen one before?

A friend made one for his 47' because he had that issue of his chain rode popping off when anchored in the infamous Lahaina roadstead. The way I'm thinking it's got to be custom fabricated to the dimensions of your sprit. The rollers themselves could be purchased though
