To start: I apologize for the web site not working very well since yesterday. My Internet provider has apparently screwed up things at their end. I hope things will improve, otherwise it will take a few days to move to a new one.
Anyways…. The work on and in the sail locker has been completed! Yay! In this image you can see the anchor chain storage box:
It is welded from polymer sewage pipe by a local plastics company. This solutions gives us a lightweight and very durable chain storage. As the chain is galvanized steel, it is very important to keep it away from contact with the hull, so we have to use a plastic storage box. The soft and low friction plastic is also ideal to reduce abrasion wear on the walls by the chain.
As you can also see in this picture the hatch is also completed, including a gas spring to hold it open.
