Hawse pipes and bowsprit work

David just loves drilling holes in the boat. As soon as I’ve got them all filled up properly with whatever belongs in them–be it bungs, or other fittings–he goes off drilling more holes!

These are important. The 3″ hawse pipes go in these holes. The chain and line from the anchor windlass fit through the hawse pipes and then run out to the bow roller on the bowsprit.
