My 388 is getting chipped on the bow when the anchor is retrieved. We want to put a SS sheath over the bow but wonder if anyone has the exact dimensions and radius for this for a template? I know there are plastic versions but that is not our preference!!

This is not a rehearsal. Go for it. Kiakaha

this is an easy solution and is useful in other ways, too.

Make sure it's 4mm steel.  I see lots of thinner ones on charter boats here which have been dinged by the anchor.  Actually looks worse than a scratch on the GRP which will mostly polish out.
When I was marina based I used a removable foam pad but now I'm anchoring every day it's too much faff so intend to get a stainless bow protection.
