Wonder if anyone could give me the length of the Dolphin Striker on the Mariner 40. Long story involving storms at sea, and all that but it disappeared in a night at anchor with rough weather and I need to make a new one.
Also.. in that vein of thought... has anyone come up with a sensible anchor technique that doesn't drag the anchor rode across the Bobstay? Between chafe on the rode and pressure on the stay in the area of the striker ( a bad place to be )... anchoring is aggravating. All I've come up with is a bridled rode between the fore hawer just off the bow and a line to the the rear to keep her sideways to the rode and eliminate a swing across the bobstay.
