Which Type of Deck Pipe?

I have a 22lb Delta anchor with 30 ft of 5/16 chain and 200 ft of 7/16 nylon rode. No winch. I would like to install a deck pipe above the chain locker. I'd really like a deck pipe with a hinged lid, and I'm curious to know if the one that I am interested in is suitable for my set-up. I'm looking at the Suncor S3810, sold by Defender and the Sea Dog 321805 sold by Redden Marine Supply. They are almost identical in specifications and appearance. Neither website says whether these deck pipes can handle both chain and nylon rode.

Thanks for any tips,
Roscoe

Just a terminology thing; you're looking for a hawse pipe.

It's just a hole with a cover. The locker has a drain so just a little bit of water will drain. I've always found the little chain on the cover breaks easily so be sure to have a way to put a leash on it. If the cover has a big hook under the cap you can hook the chain to it to weigh it down and keep the cover closed - mostly.

Yes, I find it disconcerting that next to every deck pipe (or I should say hawse pipe) that is sold with a cap-n'-chain there is a stack of replacement cap-n'-chains. That's why I'd prefer the hinged, spring-loaded cap. Have yet to see replacement caps sold for these.

The pictures seem to indicate that slits are made to accomodate chain, and that the lid would be propped open slightly if nylon rode were running out of it. Like you say, though, whatever water makes it through will drain to the bilge.

Thanks,
Roscoe

You will probably have no difficulty getting the rope to run out of it, but I imagine that feeding it back into the locker would become rather tiresome.
Regards, Richard.

The term is spurling pipe, not hawse pipe. Hawse pipes lead rode through the hull to the anchor.

In the navy we called them navel pipes with bonnets.

Hey Craig you might want to call the US Coast Guard and tell them they're using the wrong terminology.
