Cover to chain pipe

Post by bjohnson66 »

I have dropped the cover to the chain pipe on my Freedom 25 overboard. Anyone have an idea as to where I could get a replacement?

Might check to see if it is a Sea Lux. If you just want the cover you might have to give them a call. ... ook-6-inch

Been thinking about how to seal it better offshore with water on the bow. Might Macgyver something with rubber balls and silly putty - ha ha

Good Luck

If you just want to keep the water out, try using "BluTack", a sort of thick, non-marking adhesive for holding posters on the wall. Bit like putty, moulds well and doesn't harden. Just peel it off and roll into a ball when not in use. Not so elegant as the fittings shown in other posts, but an awful lot cheaper, and easily replaced if dropped in the oggin.
The P.O. of Castaway used it on Atlantic crossings, so we have been happy to trust it over the North Sea.
