Wire Cable Advice Please


Recommended Posts

went to the boat show with a mate who wanted to buy a new Lochin 33 [Not Cheap but in budget]

 

They were not at the show so he was looking at an alternative, he was in his scruffs to give the boat a good looking over and the idiot salesman kept telling him off for opening lockers and asking questions.

 

Last words from a well known ex Member were F### this as he stomped off up the jetty.

Similar thing with a salesman in Poole centre.  I went to Anglesey  to buy something he told me were not available. ( He's not there anymore ) ( Nothing to do with me ) :)

Maybe you need to make the join between the anchor and the swivel rigid somehow so that the chain doesn't come at such a 90 deg angle ?

maybe some sacrificial hose/ally tube or similar but slit lengthways so it still trips ?

hopefully some of you buddy engineers might understand me:flushed:

 

just a thought but trying to help.......and waiting for the solution:lol:

Best of luck
