I’m sure you could have something simple rigged from a heavier dock line with loops on each end. West Marine has rigging service but your local sail shop would too.
If you are going to be at anchor for a decent period of time you could set the anchor by tying to a bow cleat, then tie a loop in the anchor rode and running the bridle through it. You could also tie the rode to the eye bolt as a secondary point.
For a short anchor on a calm day in an open space, I’d still just tie off the stern, but I know others on the list frown on that practice. I’m sure you’d be fine on a calm day just tiring off on one of your bow cleats.
Happy sailing. I’ll look for you anchored on the Sound.

> Dave, the bridle is similar to my mooring bridle when the boat was in Greenwich - I'm sorry I don't still have it. The cyclone pendant is an interesting idea though way overkill for this boat. I'm sure I could have something si,liar on a smaller scale made up - how would I attach the anchor line? I imagine using that approach would reduce the tendency of the boat to hunt and keep it on center with the anchor. Since I don't really plan to anchor in anything other than mild conditions maybe it doesn't really matter.
> Rick, when I had chocks I ran the mooring bridle thru them and attached each end of the bridle to the center cleat. The few times I anchored, as I recall, I just ran the anchor line directly to the cleat.

>>> Hi all, There has been quite a bit written over the last few months about anchoring techniques but I haven’t seen a discussion of my particular question. I have a 2013/14 model - my second - which is outfitted with two bow cleats, port and starboard, no chocks, and where in my last boat I had a cleat on the bow deck along the centerline I have what I can only describe as a u bolt which looks just like the bow lifting eye. The GB explanation for this change is that it provides greater convenience and security in attaching the line from the mast crane when raising and lowering the mast. My question is whether there is any way to run an anchor line other than simply tying it to one of the two bow cleats. Note (if the picture attachment came thru) that the center eye is several inches aft of the bow cleats so if I run a line thru the eye before tying to a cleat the line would presumably be more on center though I don’t know what effect, if any, the force the eye would be running the line back to a cleat. Unless I am missing something,that setup would also require starting with the end of the anchor line in order to run it thru the eye which doesn’t seem very practical Any thoughts? Thanks.
