I got this from Menards fairly cheaply (don’t recall exact amount.)

I needed to grind a little off the nose to make it fit some fittings.

I didn’t have the handy little extension piece mentioned in the B&B video but Richard (from whim I bought Avocet) gave me the one he used in his construction. (I fashioned one that mostly worked.). If you don’t have one I could let you use it… or perhaps B&B has one to borrow. It lets you get down into the sailtrack.

The shoes will be retired (along with a bunch of shirts) when I finish my second boat and the kitchen project of new counter tops. 
I stuck my foot into the picture for a bit of reference in terms of riveter size. ?

After looking at avocet video and the one on grahams carlita I chose to go with a Danforth anchor it turns out that I had one laying around from my power boat I also salvaged the bow roller and mounted it on a piece mahogany this is on center line, the anchor has about 15’ of chain also.

hello

been taking advantage of the good weather to put some paint on Barbara Kay I color sanded the hull from the water line up to the cabin top with 1000 grit and made a deal with the local paint shop to have 2k clear sprayed in his booth. The paint job came out ok  still some dirt nubs but it’s a boat and iam ok with it. Also started the paint of the cockpit,   after the boat came back started the bright work finishing, all the wood has been sealed with two coats of epoxy sanded with 220 and 4coats of total boat Lust varnish sanded with 220 also after two coats this varnish I a very high fill product and dries quickly so recoating is not a problem to apply as many coats as you want. For now the 4coats is enough to get protection on the wood and finish the boat. 
     All this work is been inspired by the port Townsend classic wooden boat show to get finished their was a lot to see and many  how to classes on of which was the ins and outs of varnishing by a women who been do this for 30years and I learned a lot, my varnish job has a lot of room for improvement.

@Mark Rendelman— Might I suggest using a bow roller that will keep the anchor on place, when the trailered boat hits bumps in the road?  Mine has a metal loop to keep it from becoming airborne.  It also has sides, to keep the shank from sliding off onto the deck.  2727CC4A-818B-4F8D-B3DF-A4C674F393A5.thumb.png.9ed2cdf30ce0aa140d8dc0b2e8e4d382.pngI installed it into a trough, which keeps the chain off of my brightwork on my BRS15. image.thumb.jpeg.a90735e5e9f64e731a0f0e9d0cc7c73c.jpeg

 

This winter, I will probably transfer the metal part to Avocet, as she has no bow roller at the moment.  image.thumb.jpeg.ad08132a5317621dd98550a191b7f7d6.jpeg

(As PadrePoint said somewhere, I’m storing/improving/exercising her this winter, while the snow flies in his home state of Wisconsin.)
