Bow Fairlead

Anyone know where I can get a decent bow fairlead (to attach to Hypalon)?

I am looking for a proper fairlead, I don't really like the small plastic post with a clamcleat in the top, and definitely not interested in a section of D-fendering to use as a channel for the rope.

The ones the RNLI use on their Atlantics would be a good model to illustrate the sort of thing I'm looking for .... but I couldn't find a picture of one!

Ta,

Something like this, but this one is for Avons with a square bow tube shape.

Thanks Pete7. Looks like a good piece of kit. I'll ask them if it will fit my boat.

Cheers

There are a couple on the Henshaw site http://www.henshaw.co.uk/default.cfm/loadindex.7

Not as nice as Outhill's, but less expensive!

Thanks. Cost is always important!

I had one like this on a previous boat and it was OK. I'd forgotten where it came from. Unless anyone comes up with another alternative, it looks like Henshaws could get the business
