Anchor point for end of anchor chain

There was nowhere to attach the end of the anhor chain so I made up a plate out of 4mm aluminium. I drilled two holes to take bolts that would go through the new bulkhead and the sampson post. This would strangthen the sampson post and provide a good point to use a rope lashing to attahc the end of hte chain. Never use a shackle in case you need to cut the anchor loose in an emergency. This view is looking forward at the new chain locker bulkhead and you can see the teak trim and the sampson post.

Plate fitted and bolted in. Just need to shorten the bolts a little.
