bow plank

Published date: August 7, 2002
  • Boat Type: Boat Type

I added a bow plank in order to mount an anchor roller amidships. I used 'starboard' 3/4" material from WM. The opening is angled slightly to starboard to clear the roller furler/forestay. The anchor can be left in place, although I remove it after each sail for storage. Added a cover to allow the chain to enter the locker. Also note the solar vent in the foreward hatch. The trailor ladder can interfere with launching on steep ramps. I removed half of the top step. Email me for more info.
