Hypalon stitching

Hoping someone on the forum may be able to help me with this one!
I have a military spec SR5.4 and have an anchor warp storage issue.
I'd like to know if I design a hypalon bag to the rough shape of the bow section, whether there would be somebody on this site to make it for me.
There are plenty of strong points around the bow section so securing it wont be a problem, just need a proffessional to make it for me

Cheers

Not the best photo, but do you mean something like this? I'm surprised if yours is a military spec it doesn't have these bags. If you need one I have a large one, brand new which I'd be happy to sell.

Hi Tim

Yes mine already has these but I'd like a large triangular shape one made for the bow section as I normally carry 300 ft of anchor warp and the ones on the side aren't large enough.
I bought whispers 5.4 by the way

Cheers Keith

Wow, that's a lot of rope! You can buy ready made triangular shaped bags which are removable. Let me see if I can find a link...

yeah that kind of thing, where do you store your warp and chain on your 5.4?
300ft does sound a lot but when you look at the rule of thumb warp = 4/6 times the depth of water then you don't have to be in a great deal of water to use 300ft.

I've got a 6m (photo above is a random one I was playing with this afternoon). The chain and wharp lives in one of the bags at the front. Don't have anywhere near 300m though!! Friend of mine uses a bucket with a bungee cord to hold it in place at the front.

why use hypalon when a good strong pvc /tarpaulin type material would suffice and be cheaper to get made , unless of course you would like me to quote for a hypalon bag to your design .regards paul paul@tidel.biz

Depends what you do with the boat.

I often anchor in 100 to 150' depths for diving; I have 400' of primary anchor line, with another 200' on a second anchor stowed away, plus a spare 250' line for use as an extension or a tow rope.

I figure it's better to have too much than too little.
