RE: What is an Anchor Elbow?

OK, photos.* the only thing that looks in need of polishing IS the tube between above and below, which WOULD be an elbow if I had a vertical windlass as Eric described...* or maybe the plumbing elbow in the second photo, which is for the raw water anchor wash-down??*

I have to wonder if he read that on a survey somewhere, and thought he would just throw it in for effect.* I think you should call him up and find out just what the heck he was thinking.* After all, you paid good money for that advice........................Arctic Traveller

In this age of texting and word processing, it is*easy to spell incorrectly. Your surveyor really intended to state "clean and polish below anchor."

RE: What is an Anchor Elbow?

I think Tom's suggestion makes more sense than anything else. Be interesting to know, though, in case there really IS such a thing as an anchor elbow and all of us have been guilty all these years of leaving it unpolished.

RE: What is an Anchor Elbow?

PG,Well I guessed your winch type and struck out. Seems I've got another neck to stick out so I'm going to guess you've got a Danforth anchor. Neck's not out there very far now but I didn't think it was last time either. Now I'm going out there again * ...that Danforth anchor looks for all the world to me to be a stainless steel Danforth. Could that be?
I think Steve's right about the elbow. He prolly meant "the anchor locker elbow".
It IS an elbow and how could one miss all that green stuff.

If the surveyor wrote up the anchor hawse (as that's what it really is) for being green and needing to be polished, he really is a rather odd surveyor.* All the exterior hardware on our GB is bronze as is most of the interior hardware other than the cabinetry, and all of it is green or greenish or green-brown or brown.* As are all the seacocks in the boat, the rudder bars, the rudder tie-rod, etc.* None of the surveyors who have inspected our boat, from the very thorough pre-purchase survey to our latest insurance survey, said anything about how we should polish the green away.* They scratched it to make sure it wasn't pink underneath but nobody cared about the green.

When we first got our boat we shared a slip with a new Krogen.* The owner was there every weekend polishing the stainless rails and grab rails and all the other exterior hardware on the boat. (Waterspots--- it rains up here 24-7-365, remember?)* One day he looked over at us and said, "Thats the bad thing about these new boats.* Everything''s stainless and if you don't keep it polished everybody thinks you're neglecting your boat.* On boats like yours, you never have to polish anything and everyone says what a wonderful patina it all has."

Anchor elbow is closely related to the golden rivet.
Go find it.

RE: What is an Anchor Elbow?

Carey--- You need to show these people your amazing shore power and fresh water hookup that works on any dock, anywhere. regardless of whether the dock is provided with power and water or not. It took a true stroke of genius to come up with the concept and if you weren't so damned lazy you could be making millions with it. Every boater in the world would want one of these so as to have 30 amp groundpower and fresh water at any dock, anywhere, anytime. You know how many people at Sucia come up and ask to use your power or water when you have the unit set up over there. Now multiply that by the number of boaters on the planet. You would make Bill Gates look like an apple seller on a corner during the Depression.

I hear you, but West Marine calls it an Anchor Elbow. Who am I to criticize what someone else stores in their anchor locker.*

MarinI'll have to do that photo session next time we go to Sucia. It must be seen in all it's glory.
When our forum friends see it, they will no longer question why I am resisting the addition of a gen set on my boat.

JenniferYou had me at "Your boat sure is pretty Carey".* Thanks!


Actually, I have to say that Tom White must be right on this one. Must have been a brief moment of dislexia on behalf of the surveyor.

RE: What is an Anchor Elbow?

Hey guys - I've had a thought - no quips now, I do have them occasionally - could the anchor elbow thingy be the shiney (meant to be polished) bow protector some vessels have there just under the sprit? Nordys spring to mind. Do you have one of those Pineapplegirl? If so maybe that needs a bit of spit and polish. If not my idea's cactus. It came to me when I thought of how some people wear jackets with leather protectors over the point of wear at the elbow...waddayathink...?
