Hello all, new H27 owner here! Have sailed them before, but now have my own :-)

I'm sure I've seen it on other H27's, but can't quite remember the geometry of it. I would like to relocate the anchor pipe that splits the forepeak berth in two. I'm sure I've seen it located onto the toilet bulkhead, and fed through the deck on the coachroof.

Questions are...

Is this correct / has anyone actually done this?

Also, where does the chain get store - under the starboard side of the bunk? Somewhere else?

Or is there some other cunning way to relocate the pipe.

All answers gratefully received! Happy sailing :-)

In my H27, the anchor is in the front of the forepeak, with a chainpipe on deck.
The pipe bisecting the forepeak was a water pipe, but was removed.
It’s a nice idea to store the chain low and central, but handy to have it right at the front of the boat...

I replaced it this way, the chain slides till the same spot under the bed where is was before I took the tube away

Thank you for the responses - seems that relocating to where DavidS shows in the photo is the way to go. David - did you put a tube inside the forepeak, and down to the under bed space?

No I didn't, although I'm going to put a layer of 2-3 leafs of glassfiber on the inside of the hull where the chain comes straight down to the hull to protect it from the chain.
