  • Anchor Mount

    Silly question:

    My 23' has a sea bowld "rode deck pipe opening" on the forward deck to allow the rode to come throw the deck with the excess remaining in the locker below. I dont *see* anywhre to secure the anchor externally, and I dont have a bow rail. So, my question is what options do I have for securing the anchor on the foredeck??

    Something like this:

    Or this:

    Justin A buddy of mine has that type setup. It has worked fine, but one day we were in some rough sea's. The anchor is tied down with a short piece of nylon cord. The other end came out of the mount and beat the hell out of that end closing those end mounts up. It was just like hitting a rifle shell with a hammer. $60 to fix that.[]

      Hmm...so one end is secured w/ a bracket, the other is tied down?

      Does anyone else have this setup?

      I'm not sure I want to utilize it given that it can 'jump,' but at least want to have a sense its design...

        I wonder how well something like this would work:

          i went this route with a chain stop. even with the chain stop not locked the anchor stayed on in 6' seas.

            Would something like this work for you?

            Anchor in the pulpit with a chain tensioner holding her fast even in the roughest seas.

              That's what I have in mind for my boat. The only thing that you have to be careful of is the trailer winch stand banging the anchor or hanging up.

              This could be cured by shorting the winch stand post if need be.

                If only I had a pulpit []

                I actually think I might just keep it in the anchor locker, and bring it out as needed. Though I may at least checkout the chock idea.

                  while we are on this subject. has anyone tried the rubber coated chains for application yet? the reason I ask, the chain tensioner a great job of keeping the anchor in place but the chain after the tensioner is left loss and I really don't like that chain bouncing around all over the place.

                  Megabyte I see you put a length of foam around your chain probably for the same reason?

                  Justin for your sake, since you don't have a pulpet for the tensioner to pull your anchor tight up against, you'll need to get a harness that your anchor would hook onto so it comes tight once you flip that tension over. I've seen them a BoatUS

                  you would only use the top part for the anchor to hook onto and replace the cleat with the tensioner.

                    Yep. For exactly that reason.

                    It is a piece of split foam insulation of the type used to insulate water pipes.

                    Working pretty well so far. []

                      If you are gonna put something like an anchor on the bow, I prefer a setup like the new 232.

                      Below deck and locked down. It hangs just below the deck for easy access and no chain bouncing around. You could have one made out of starboard. I got a quote for the same thing a few months back from www.buckwoodcraft.com.

                      I decided to eventually go with a flush mount hatch and drop in container with the bottom cut out to hold on of these from fpmarine.com ($18):

                        One thing I did years ago to both of my anchors is to push a piece of regular heater hose up onto both sides of those round pieces that stick out both sides of a regular Danforth style anchor. It has stopped me from beating up the deck when I put the anchor back into the chocks that I have on each side of the forward deck. Also makes it a convienent place to cross wrap long anchor chains around when the anchor is on the deck. To hold the hold mess in place I take a couple of half hitches onto both sides with the anchor line. Makes for a real secure package as long as your anchor chocks are positioned properly to hold you anchor. Hope this helps -

                          That Heater hose is a damn good idea.[]

                            Megabyte,

                            Do you cleat that chain off down-wind of the anchor tensioner, or do you let the tensioner handle the load?
