Anchor fairlead bollard thingy

I want a 'bollard-type' anchor fairlead on my Vipermax but it isn't a standard Eurocraft tube fitting.

Any idea on suppliers for one like the item in the picture below please? I can't find it on the web but I'm not really sure what you should call it?

Thanks

I think Henshaws and Paul Tilley do them.

I got this from Henshaws and Eurocraft fitted it for me. You can also just about see the Sampson post fitted to the anchor locker.

We had one on our last boat, don't really see the point of it.

You wouldn't want to trust just that tube fitting to secure your anchor to, so you'll secure it somewhere stronger anyway...so it just gets in the way while doing very little.

I wouldn't bother with the boll**k catcher on the front. I have a hefty s/s U bolt in the forward part of the bow locker and black rubber channel section over the nose. It works a treat.

Quite! If you've climbed off over the front a few times you'll know what he means!

Actually I almost always launched single handed and I found it useful to hold on to while teeting at the ungraceful point of either falling into the boat or falling into the water - which is the main reason I wanted it...

Thanks
