Hi Mex,


I notice a pair of lines at the side of your bow (as well as with the boats you just can see at the top of the picture). Are these ment to fix the bow when in port and how do you pick them up as they seem to come from below the surface?

Regards,

Ron

Hi Zeester, this is the typical Mediterranean setup for mooring stern-to. The lines come from the bottom where a big concrete block or any other heavy fix holds them ( most marinas have what is called a mother chain running along the bottom for that use) and terminate at the quay with a thinner rope; when you come to the berth, you pick up the thin rope, pull on board the thick one at the bow and pull it tight against the stern ropes to keep the boat from going backwards. the thin lead remains all outside the boat so when you leave the berth you just throw everithing outside and it remains ready for your return. Akward manouver if you are alone but if the wind is not too bad it can be done...

Hi Richard.

I've spoken to my ss fabricator and he is going to come up with a cost for making these subject to a minimum order of about 10.
I will get back to the MyHanse site as soon as possible with the cost and contact details.

Regards Colin.

We have had large problems with the anchor channel.  It is structurally very flimsy. The metal is too weak and thin and it is not held on well enough with a good backing plate.  It rattles, vibrates and comes loose. This last weekend we tore it like a piece of paper in a storm. I have got to replace this thing fast and would appreciate any help anyone can give. What I think I need is a channel that is about 6 in. longer made of stronger metal and more firmly affixed. Where to go from here?

Hi Colin,
 
Thnaks for the information so far. I would be very much interested in the described item. I actually was about to inform locally, but I guess price and quality improves, incase you could order multiple.
Please inform me on the price you were able to negotiate.

Hi Richard.

Sorry about the delay in getting back but the fabricator has not got back to me yet (His main buisiness is architectural and he's very busy !).
I've also approached another company in Dumbarton (Glasgow) and as soon as I hear from either company I'll post the details.

Regards Colin.

No rush at all from my end. I sail throughout the year (actually I prefer winter sailing to summer) - but don't do much (voluntary) anchoring in the winter.
 
The marinas are quiet - berths are always available - and often at reduced rates.
 
Will wait for your further news. Thankyou for following up on this.
 
best regards

Hi Richard.
I have received a price from Donald Cameron of Argyle Metal Services for fabricating the bridle fitting.
Made from grade 316 SS (Not polished) the price is 141.00 + VAT + Delivery.

Donald specialises in SS , but works single handed so is not interested in supplying the export market .

His contact details are :-

Unit 32 ,Lime Road,Broadmeadow , Dumbarton , G82 2RP.

Tel;01389 764140.

I hope this is useful.          Regards Colin.
