New Chain Locker and Windlass Relocation Complete — 5 Comments

  1. Nice work. If Dawn does contract work I have a similar problem with my anchor locker. Just one suggestion; Make the line connecting the bitter end of the chain to the strong point long enough to reach up on deck and about one foot forward of the windlass. In the unlikely event that you have to slip the anchor (it can happen) you run out the chain and then cut the line on deck.

    Happy New Year

  2. Dawn says "I will NEVER be doing that again". 😉

    That is a great suggestion for attaching the bitter end. We also wanted to add some warning flags after our last measured part of the rode, so we’ll have it out again at some point and do what you suggest as well.

    Happy New Year!
