Windlass Chafe Guard - Yorkshire Rose

Mark Elkin, Yorkshire Rose #133

After putting a year of service on my new windlass, I noticed the chafing the chain was doing to the deck as it enters the anchor locker. Quickly solved with a piece of starboard. Just used the template that came with the windlass to get the rough shape. Then smoothed it a razor-knife and beveled the outer edges.
