I chain hole cover made from aluminum scrap to keep water (most of it) out of the chain locker.

Keeping rain and spray from running down past the chain into the locker can be a challenge. Our original windlass had a cool bronze vertical hawse for the chain with a cover. But that fitting wouldn't work with the Lofrans Tigres that we replaced it with so my wife made a full cover for the Tigres. Outer layer is regular Sunbrella with an inner liner of Sunbrella vinyl so it's waterproof.

Juneau, Alaska - July:
"I always sleep with one eye open when anchored in Handtroller's Cove during a blow; mostly because of other
boats dragging their anchors and running into us. I must say in the two and a half years we've owned the
ALLWEATHER we've never dragged anchor even with two boats tied together. We operate the boat year round and
have weathered some pretty nasty stuff.
"Early the next morning about 5:00 a.m. I got up just in time to fend a 28 foot flying bridge Bayliner. He was heading
for shore so Denise and I tied them off to the ALLWEATHER. The wind was blowing so hard I couldn't wake them by
shouting so we gave them a shot with the foghorn. They were very surprised to find themselves tied off to our boat
but glad just the same. We had coffee together while the wind whipped us around but our Bruce anchor never
slipped an inch. We meet a lot of people that way on the ALLWEATHER."
Art and Denise Chase


I found this in the Allweather site. Don't often see such a testimonial for Bruce anchors.

Eric Do you still have your reel/drum type anchor winch, or did you get it sold before your move south?

Eric: Instead of going by Manyboats, maybe we should call you "ManyAnchors".
