Anchor in

What a difference a bit of sunshine makes.

After a really dismal last few days on the boat, things suddenly seem to be coming together.

Anchor inHere you see my anchor properly installed in it's newly created box, and pulled up snug in it's hawse pipe there (looks like I've got some painting to do).

Robin is justifiably proud of his work here, thanks Robin.

It's just a pity I couldn't get the right chain to fit the gypsy in time for our departure on Saturday.

We will have to make do with what I've bought at the chandlery round the corner.

It must be said that the folks at The Marine Warehouse have been such a help, above and beyond the call of duty. Great prices too.

  1. Great job! you do need some stainless anchor and chain wear facilities around the boxing so that you don`t have a rusty mess develop where the chain or anchor grinds its way back into the box! The way to decide where to put it ( possibly) is to wait for the rust to deveop, clean it up and fit nice shiny ss wear pads? nice job Rob!
