HI all is it better to start at the transom on bow to stitch the panels. :-)
It should say in the build notes. I know most of them start at the transom. Check the notes though.

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

GB,

I think you have to have a large radius OR a roller at the contact point of chain and sprit. If you have some PVC try cutting some sections to fit into the sprit and see if making a formed round over will work. I think 2” is as small as you would want to go.

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

As I said, “I think”. I also “think” the anchor will only be pinned for securing it.

There’s a burning smell right now. Thinking is bad for me.

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

I think the problem with the standard here is that it allows the anchor lateral movement which creates banging.

I think.

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

For the slow guy...

You’ll have a 2” roller about 6” back, a cut out about 1.5” in diameter to allow chain to go over roller then just the 1/2” slit forwar of the cut it to the end of the sprit. Yes?

Any plans to line the wood edges that are likely to take load/chaffing when the anchor is deployed?
