Getting some arms made for at anchor flopper stoppers.
Anyone got any idea of approx loads that I could expect on the downhaul, uphaul rope on a 60fter?
These will be 3 m/9 ft arms with rope going up to our roof.
I was thinking of epoxy setting a 1/2 in s/s eyebolt into the roof beams that extend out from a bulkhead position.
These are 3 inch laminated beams that stick out about 2 ft from the cabin side at 16 inch spacings topped with 5/8th ply.
Not all boats have masts or framework as can be seen in these pics so I can't imagine the loads being that horrific but I certainly don't want to go tearing the roof off.
