Have a great New Year,


Hi Peter
Having a little break ATM. Doing a couple of hours here and there but nothing too solid. Letting my joints recover before getting back into it. Hope you have a good 2017

Haha glad all the Tim Tams I sent over arrived mate. Jen sounded happy on Facebook :-). What's your favourite flavour?

Hi mate.
Yeah I've been busy. I had to do some pretty unique hull modifications to the Port side so it was the same as the starboard side. Bit of mucking around to get back on track but I did it. So basically the last couple of weeks I have been getting the flare right. Next week i will re-cut the portholes in the skin and glass the porthole tubes in and start moving forward not sideways etc lol. Just sent a PM and email too

Hi all. If possible, can i please see some pics of your Sampson posts, anchor bow rollers/capstan/windlass set ups please?

I want to work out how far I need to mount my Sampson Post. I have a Steel post from the underside of the deck to the keel so just need to work out where to fit the deck fitting so I can weld a plate to the steel post.

I've had a look on the forum and can't really see anything to gauge measurements from.... TIA.

That second picture looks like Walt's old Halvorsen 32. Always one of my favorite foredeck arrangements. If Mark Pierce does not reply to this in a couple days send him a pm. He has an awesome arrangement and am sure a photograph to spare.

Here's my simple layout Hendo.

Plenty of clearance for the chain stopper.

Not quite enough clearance between Samson Post and windlass for manual operation - discovered that when my hydraulic pump failed with 20m of chain down(!)

One of these days I'll also add a hoop to the second (rope) roller.
