Carbon bobstay anchor.

Before moving the mainhull half to the other workshop I still have to finish some things. One of them is the bobstay anchor.

Carbon bobstay anchor

Some time ago I had a look on the composite department of Stork Aerospace and there I learned that they put a lot of effort in saving weight at the ends of airplanes and wings. Not a surprise of course but this reminded me of the quite heavy bobstay anchor in the bow of the F39. In spite of the fact that I prepared the piece of stainless steel to fasten into the bow, I decided to make a much lighter carbon one, almost in the same way as the carbon chainplates.
