Fairleads

I have been thinking about fitting some fairleads to the Skerry to make it easier to run an anchor back to secure to the mast if needs be. Has anyone done this?

Re: Fairleads

Well to answer my own Q, i took the plunge an they look rather jaunty and will help no end when tying off at a mooring for dropping the anchor.

The Skerry is designed as a day boat, but there are times when you want to travel further and the boat is actually quite short of spots to secure lines. These should be a handy help, running back to some homemade cleats.
