gunwale protector?

Recommended Posts

might be a silly question, but Just wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to protect my gunwale from the anchor chain - if dropping and lifting on my own I don't want to roll the chain over the wooden gunwale - and lifting at arms length is tough... I was thinking a plastic sheet bent over the side, and then i could lift and lower slowly and more controlled?

maybe a 5 gal drum cut? 

any good ideas?

its a colvic 20 so quite deep gunwales - I did think about soil pipe or guttering

Building sites and farmers are a good source of wide diameter land drain pipe (although many famers believe the two foot of pipe abandoned in their yard is gold plated - haggle 🤣

I work onsite so it’s a freebie for me. 👍
