I've got the chain drive as well. I have autopilot on the chain drive. Haven't seen it work yet though.

Maybe I was too hasty to throw the chain set up for hydraulic

I just did my chain splice the other day and I did the # 2 . It was my first so I won't be posting a picture of it . It would have turned out better had I had a splicing fid . It looks ok but I'm keeping a close eye on it . I'm going to get me a fid and redo .

We use a factory eye splice with shackle but have no gypsy to deal with. If we did probably have to go with option 1 though.

If your'e the type that anchors from the bow (like many of us) one could just use a shackle and thimble. When the shackle came up just reach down and pull a foot of rode and put the chain on the gypsy to finish the job.

With the shackle only a few inches of the rode is incompatible w the gypsy.

Hi folks. Today's question is about insulation/sound deadening. I am thinking acoustic batts used in sound proofing houses and studios etc. What's your thoughts? Cause that engine room stuff is pricey and is the same IMO.

Hey mate,
Thanks for the link. Yep similar stuff to over here and is as pricey as hell.
Do you have similar in Moonstruck? Is it worth the cost.
