Well, here it is. This is the geometry data from the mock up testing finished last weekend. I will let the picture speak for itself. Turns out things could be simplified from the initial drawings I put together. Only the aft roller need be adjusted. I guess this why one does experiments and mock ups.
The aft roller positions will stow all four types of these anchors and will self-launch when released.
Also, the Windline rollers used in the mock up will pull through a 3/8" chain, with a standard galvanized shackle attaching to the anchor shank, without difficulty.
Next is to use this data to continue the pulpit design.
