Thanks again alain.
Yes, I will keep the anchor hatch
, but split it in two, one half will have to be fixed, as the chain goes over the top of it and will also hold the hawse pipe, which I will raise up 100mm to provide more room for fall for the chain in the locker. I will keep the 16 mm nylon rope
, but ditch the 22mm polypropelene rode
. At present there is 45m of 10 mm chain and 80( I think) metres of 22mm rope
I am getting a clearer picture of what is needed. I will be sailing around the Malacca straights and the west coast
, then down the west coast
, Sumatra, Java, Bali, quite often 30 metres deep there.
Thanks again Alain.
