    Default What is the anchor rope "deck hole cover" called?

    What is that metal part with a cap that goes over the anchor rope hole in the deck? I can't seem to find it in boat catalogs, but I know I've seen it before.

    Thanks. Actually the correct one is deck pipe, as I found out a hawse pipe is for gunwale or vertical use.

    Noone knows what's correct because the question was unintelligable. There is no such thing as an anchor rope. At least not on a boat!

    He's right- there's no rope on a boat.
    it's an anchor LINE or anchor RODE....

    Well...
    "Rope, called line when used aboard boats, is essential to outfitting your boat properly. When you shop for boating supplies and accessories, line should be at the top of your list. You will use it to tie your boat to the dock, to attach your anchor to keep your boat from drifting, to tie protective fenders when you are moored, and many more uses which include, but are not limited to, knot tying, splicing and more.

    There are many different types and sizes of lines to match its many uses. Line is classified by whether it is natural or synthetic, it's construction and size. Each type of line excels at different uses aboard a boat."

    Wake, wash, props and wheels all have a place in a boat discussion. Rope is only used to tie up a dog.

    Now....let's talk about bumpers and buoys. You know, those rubber thingys that you hang over the gunwale (er gunnel) so you don't hit the dock.

    i can't answer the op's question. but as to rope or line. for a boat, the way i get it is. rope is static and not doing anything but sitting waiting to be used to do some work, line is doing some work. rode is anchor line.

    Just be certain that when you install the deck pipe, you have it aligned with the "rope" hole facing to the stern so any water that washes over the deck will not enter and go below. also, seal the deck pipe to the deck with 5200 or silicone seal etc.

    And be certain you get a deck pipe big enough to pass either the splice thimble in the rope end or the anchor chain fasteners, whichever is larger.

    LOL, you guys are awesome. Sorry for the "rope" mistake. Please don't keel-haul me!

    BTW - thanks to all of you I was able to find the part I needed, an oval covered deck pipe. Right now my newly acquired boat only has an unevenly cut hole in the deck. Funny for a Chris-Craft, I don't think it came from the factory that way!

    Well, when you're broke down in the middle of nowhere and you need a tow in, I bet my ROPE will tow you in just fine. I'm 45 and have been around boats my entire life. I was a firefighter/paramedic for 12 years, so I know more about knots, lines and ropes than most, as I'm also qualified in high angle rescue (or was) SO, if I call an actual line a rope forgive me for being a hick from Northern Minnesota, who doesn't get hung up on proper names or terms.

    See you on the Lake

    you know..... I think the O/P DID come up with a use for rope on a boat..... You could use it to lash the hands and feet of the poor guy getting keel hauled to the line that will drag him under.... mebbe.....

    Joe, everyone knows that a mariner who uses the proper term for everything never breaks down LOL

    Was just browsing the CL ads. One I need to look at for sure......

    The ad stated that the boat came with a moter and trailor, and had all equipment including roaps and bumpers. The only thing it didnt have was paperwork.....LOL.

    HA this is an awesome thread!!

    When I first picked up my boat, I told my friend who by the way doesn't have a boat to "Get those rubber thingys up onto the deck, He said they are called Fenders.." Then I told him to make sure that the rope is tight on the dock... he said it's called line".... My last statement to him was Why the heck don't you own a boat and maybe you should go buy one..
    END of conversation.... LOL- Needless to say I have learned a lot of terms over the last couple of months.

    I had always described it this way: Rope is rope until it is actually tied to something, then it is a line. A line is a working hand-held tool. A rode is a line attached to an anchor.

    And I hate fenders being called bumpers... (See that? That's my angry face...)

    And they are called fenders because you use them to fend the boat off the dock. See there is a logical reason for the language. Just as Key West is not named because it is the most Westerly key. It is from the Spanish who found lots of bones on the island hence the corruption of Cayo (island) to Key and Hueso (bones) to West. Cayo Hueso--Key West. And the Grand Tetons are named because to the early explorers they looked like big (grande) womens t*ts (Tetons) --Not a lot of people know that!
