Bow Rope Guide

Hi Guys,
I need to buy or make an anchor rope guide / fairlead for the bow of my RIB. I think that maybe cutting down some D section rubbing strake and gluing it over the bow could do the job. I only require about 1 to 2ft.
I have seen some posh cleat type guides fitted to Valiant ribs but they are too expensive at about 100.
Does any member know where I can get hold of a small length of this stuff, or any other ideas or methods to guide the anchor rope?
Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can do that. I'm sure Paul will explain how to do it if you contact him.

I'm sure Ribcraft would have some rubstrake for you. They use a heavy duty D shaped strake. I believe it's rubber, as oppoed to pvc, which should be easy to glue.

email the salesman jason@ribcraft.co.uk

Talk to Laurence Lock at Barnet Marine (01707 331 389), they can supply rope fair leads and will explain what glues to use and how to use them on PVC.

It's difficult to tell from your picture but it looks very like a piece of 'D' section which has been split (using an angle grinder.... ) to allow the rope to locate. If it is that, I'd recommend you don't do it. The rope will easily roll out of the slot even though it looks as though it is secure. If you still want something similar, use two strips of 'D' section side by side.

For gluing rubber to pvc, you will need to prime the pvc with pvc adhesive and allow it to cure. You can then use Bostik 2402 to glue the rubber to the pvc primed area.

Do a ribnet search to find the methods used for gluing each material.

seems standard practice to just use ribbing strake and cut out an inch section for the rope. that seems to be what ribcraft and others can do


i sent for a slightly different approach
