Funny you should ask Mike. I caught Martin open today and ordered a stainless anchor roller for my Bruce 10k anchor. Once I have it in my paws I can then cut out the hole in the pulpit.

Cheers
Michael

Here I have cut out the middle section and recessed the pulpit to accept the roller

Here is the new self launching anchor roller. She's a heavy little sucker

Well III admit I screwed up a bit and I bought the wrong roller.
I took Louise with me to pick it up and she got sold with the idea that the SELF LAUNCH idea would be a better roller.... NOT. I had to recess the roller quite a bit so as the Bruce wouldnt hit the bottom. The higher rollers lift the anchor up, but I made it work none the less.

Here is a photo of the anchor in place and the finishing will now begin with sanding and coats of epoxy with finish coats of Spar Varathane

Nice job, Mike. I did mine a couple of years ago in ply with epoxy and glass cloth, finished it with Petit Easypoxy paint and non-skid. I should have gone with teak....

1989 2650...an ongoing restoration...but I'm totally clueless...It just happened to be running the day this photo was taken.
Isn't owning a boat always an ongoing restoration?

It's a beautiful day in southern Ontario and just perfect for me to install the new pulpit.

I cleaned and scuffed up the area and installed some of my high performance UV resistant silicone

Carman you could use almost anything. I used a Teak like wood called Merwasa or Banak. Once you use epoxy to build and seal the wood its super strong.
