Now that's a really good question. The event may happen as it is drawn close to the anchor resting position.
If I were at my boat, I would go measure mine.

Yours will be a bit different because you have that 'rib' in the middle.

Matt Buddy... You gonna break a Beer or Champaign bottle on her bow stem at launch??!! 2018 is the year... we all hope for your, Felicity's and Solstice's sake!


But, one thing is for sure... don't push yourself too hard... if sometime in 2019 becomes the date - then so be it!

No mate. No smashing of bottles. I will have a ‘naming ceremony’ and a bit of a ‘blessing of the fleet’ thing.

My goal is to be finished on or around my 40th birthday in December this year but this will depend on being financially able. If I can’t then it’ll roll over till I can :-)

Your anchor will never contact the hull, being out on your bowsprit, so don't bother with the bow plate suggested above. Not necessary.
But you knew that.

This afternoon I finished making the mounting plates for the diesel filler neck and water filler neck. I’m tossing up about giving it a grained finish or a polished finish like the filler necks. What’s your thoughts?... After that I jumped on the sander and put in a hour making dust and making the bow smooth then patched a couple of imperfections then I went all ‘Macgyver’ and moved my genset to act as an anchoring point and tied off ropes to it for the tarps and then piled a heap of old truck batteries and did the same to hold down the tarps further down then it was time to go. Back in to it tomorrow.

I agree. My bowsprit is shorter than yours, Matt, and my S-Sarca never touches the bow. Comes close, but never touches. They look nice though.

I would rather be safe than sorry.
