On the 32 there is an extra hole on the bobstay fitting on the hull. We have a 50' piece of double braid anchor rode spliced onto a thimble/shackle combo attached to this bobstay fitting. We then use this line to tie off the anchor using a bowline on a bight, or a chain hook if using all chain. This eliminates the bobstay problem and lowers the attachment point for better catenary. It does however allow the boat to tack back and forth in a breeze, when using only one anchor.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
