Maybe I should do a preemptive strike, and dump the nylon now and go with braid...
Get the use out of it first and then stow it as a spare or to loan to someone that needs it. I get all kinds of line that people leave on our rentals. If it is long enough I keep it all in a crate. Never know when someone just needs some line.

You can also look at 8 Brait anchor line , defender and Jamestown both carry it . Excellent anchor line
but not cheap.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I will use this a few times to see how good or bad it is and will then replace it with one of the suggestions from the group.

Thanks!

Casey

Here is the progress from the last two or so weeks.

Cleats are now on between the front of the bow and bulkhead B. I had to remove some of the support so the tanks can be taken out in the future if they need to be repaired or replaced, so I beefed up the cleat for additional strength.

Where the support beam terminates at the bow, I added some glass for good measure. Next I will use some thickened epoxy to further bridge the support to the underside of sheer clamp.

The anchor box and battery tray are almost complete, as is the way I intent do tie down these components.

I have one side of the rod end tubes almost done, and need to heat two more pieces of PVC for the other side. Taping one piece of pvc that has been shaped to fit, to a straight piece of pvc, and using a heat gun to bend the straight piece against the piece that already has been shaped, works great. Especially if you keep the straight piece on top and let gravity work for you.

The mahogany with the holes cut at an angle hold the pvc in place against bulkhead A.

Looks like two fuel tanks, how much fuel is that puppy going to carry?
Really nice looking work.
