    Here is the Colligo Marine writeup on how they do the lashings:

    But honestly there aren't many different shapes they can be, as they are essentially based on a thimble. They are similar to the Colligo aluminium ones, though solid other than the lashing holes, so they look more like a traditional deadeye than the Colligo version.

    Peter, your photo a couple of posts back would work fine as a solid part with lashing holes for the lanyards. Some rigs even use a simple thimble as you've pictured and allow the lashings to just stack in the thimble. The thing to be concerned about is the radius you are putting the dux around, and radiusing the lashing holes so they run smooth, and are large enough radius if the lanyard is also dux, which Pixie's are not.
    If you send me or post a drawing of what you need I'll see what I can do.

    or is this it ?

    They are basically like that, yes. Mine don't have the triangular cutout.
    The size depends on what size line is being spliced onto them. If you look up Colligo's info on their "Terminator", you will find dimensions and sizing guides based on line thickness.

    On Pixie (and the dhow), there is no deadeye at the bottom of the lashing. The lashing goes onto a large smooth eye which is part of the chainplate. Have a look at Tom's photos of the dhow back a few pages. Colligo's bottom deadeye as in that last photo above is so they can retrofit them to existing chainplates with a pin.

    Tom is the one needing parts, so check with Tom.

    That's exactly the kind of thing to shoot for. The only change needed to that example is a nice smooth radiused run all the way through the lashing holes.

    That would be work for a Dremel or a lot of filing.

    Nice sail today both up and down the river. Light winds with the occasional slightly stiffer breeze that got me up around 4 knots. Beating back against the tide was a relaxed challenge and I only used the outboard a few times to get me through the short stretches where it was right on the nose. The transom mount depth sounder was bloody annoying though.
    The definition of stupid has got to be the belief that more guns will negate the bloodshed done with guns.

    Hey Peter yes I would love to buy some of those of you should you decide to proceed in that direction.
    I believe there could be a niche market for such fittings as new ways of rigging using Dyneema are embraced by more traditionalists and mainstream riggers.

    Saw this rather Interesting mooring design at Boyd’s Bay Bridge today designed by an engineer, I like it. The placement of the mooring went relatively smooth. Placed inside an alloy skiff with some flotation attached to one side,then the bungs where opened and the mooring just rolled out of the skiff before it hit bottom.With some additional flotation attached to the 200kg pipe a diver was able to turn it right sideup in about 3m of water.

    It looks like a pretty light mooring Tom?

    The bottom has welded slats and believe the owner went down with scuba and probably bedded it using air pressure.,once filled with sand it would in my opinion far outweigh my one ton block on the seabed surface.

    I'll make a pattern. What size lines are used with it, your WB anyway?

    Default Antipodean Boats Connection

    Currently fire warnings for the area north of Newcastle including Tanilba, Mallabula and LTP. Fingers crossed for Rick Tracey Woody and the property, and all the good people there 😞 😞

    Likely, I'd like a well bedded in one ton concrete block with a length of 25mm chain protruding.

    They had fire last year didn't they? It's looking like being a cruel year.

    This time it's very close to Rick and Tracey's place. Still not controlled/contained.

    Concerned. Watching the RFS map and reports, updates 15 mins. The fire is moving up the peninsula their place is on, not moving into Tanilba built up area but right up to it. They are on the far side of the built up area from the fire front, except that a smaller fire seems to have broken out ahead of the front, further along the peninsula from their place.

    Got a message from Rick. They are in Newcastle so not near the fire.
