A few posts ago showed how I had bought the wrong sized hawse pipe, it being too small to take a shackle and splice on the anchor. At the time I said I would use the the small pipe for mooring warps.
Mooring Warp Lockers
When I built the aft lockers I did so to the original design which had left a small volume of the lockers unusable.
Each locker has three bulkheads, the one nearest the camera, a rear locker bulkhead and then - just behind it - the main transverse bulkhead that goes right across the boat. The blurry picture below shows a close-up of the rear bullheads on the starboard locker.
When the top went on the locker the space between the bulkheads became sealed in. I thought that if I accessed this lost volume it would make an ideal locker for a mooring warp.
First a hole was cut out in the bulkhead. Then a hole in the deck .
Next the warp was fed into the locker from the top, and the end pulled through the bulkhead for securing to an anchor point.
