Very conveniently, on the first morning of our summer holiday, we had a call from Anglesey Fabrications to say that our modified bow roller was ready for a test fitting.
Very close. Just a slight adjustment to the cutout of the tails so it drops fully onto the hull. Then a bottom plate to join the two side extensions. Finally a lot of polishing.
Then we can fit it (will require some fibreglass work to the deck). Once we have tested it with the anchor we can sort our the roller and the cross bars (used to contain the anchor and stop it damaging the rigging).
Very happy so far. Testing with the anchor is obviously a significant step still to come.
