Arrrrr me hearties. Welcome aboard.
The drilling process for the anchor rollers proved to be as problematic as drilling the mounting holes for the bowsprit. But I hit upon a solution and I believe the solution will work out as planned. So now my bow sprit is ready to be bolted to the deck, AND it is ready for the anchor roller hardware to be bolted on. Not much left to do on it! There’s two holes left to drill – one through the butt of the sprit where a bolt passes through the sampson posts and sprit, and the second through the sprit for the eybolt that connects the stem fitting and base for the cutter stay.
As always fair winds, following seas, and God bless.
