My Chain Scrubber Broke !

I have an anchor chain scrubbing brush made by Davis. I use it all of the time and it strips most of the mud off the chain while bringing it up and then a simple squirt with the washdown pump as the anchor comes over the bow roller means a clean chain going into the locker. The brush after 10 years is lost one of the astro turfs used to scrap mud and I do not think it will be with us very much longer. Contacted the Davis group and they say they no longer market this product. Anyone know of anyone who does manufacture a replacement?

Cheers

My chain scrubber is broke too. We are both broke. She gets angry when she is not fed. I'm thinking of a replacement too.

SWAP!?! I am pretty sure she would jump ship from a slow boat like Sari Timur after being on a fast boat like Sea Life. Especially if she gets the scrub watch!!! How's Turkey?

Fine and dandy. Except for a storm cell that appears on the Gribs for Saturday blowing the egg out of a custard.

The weather here is fickly to put it mildly!

Apart from scrubbers are you guys relaxing?

Hey Gord thanks for that it looks pretty good. The old one kind of worked the same way except it scraped the mud off before it came out of the water and used the sea to get the majority of it off. Left the hose free to get that bit in between the links off as it came over the roller. This one might be more efficient and get it all off. Has anyone got any experience with this brush?

Cheers

stopped in a truckstop last week for a meal and when brousing around, came across a brush used to scrub the grundg off of exaust stacks.. has about a 3 to a 4 inch pocket in it.. we've been using a modified tolit brush on the end of a pole but the scrubber at the truck stop looked pretty cool..
