2 Claims. (Cl. 114—210)
This invention relates to anchor booms and more par
portion 13. As shown mos-t clearly in FIG. 4, the up
standing wall portions 11 and 12 diverge from each other
at the outboard end of the boom assembly and the web
portion 13 is cut away at a point corresponding to the
divergence to provide a substantial opening for recep
tion of a roller member 14. The roller member 14 is,
of course, ro-tatably mounted on an axle which extends
ticularly to anchor supporting and securing devices of
between and through the divergent portions of the side
the type which are particularly adapted for use on boats
walls 11 and 12.
Also, as shown most clearly in FIG. 4, the roller 114
includes a center cylindrical section .215 and a pair of
outer larger diameter cylindrical sections 16 and 17 and
in the so-called pleasure craft range of sizes.

boats and the lowering or raising of anchors particularly
in rough seas are Well known. Such problems are dis

Referring again to FIG. 1, it will be seen that the
The present invention, while adapted to the same
usage as the ‘anchor boom shown in the aforementioned
patent, ?nds primary utility in the smaller size of boats
of the pleasure class. The anchor boom of the afore
mentioned U.S. patent, on the other hand, is primarily
adapted for the upper range of sizes of the pleasure boat

upstanding sidewalls 11 and 12 at the outboard end of
the boom not only diverge from each other but are also

When the anchor is fully raised, the

Four lugs 21, 22, 23 and 24 are arranged two on
each side of the rear of the boom and function in co~
operation with the base plate member in a manner to
be hereinafter described.

In general, the objects of the present invention are
achieved by providing an elongated boom structure which
is substantially channel shaped in cross section with the
outboard ends of the upstanding channel walls diverging
from each other and the corresponding web portion being 60
cut away to provide a housing for a roller member of
particular con?guration. The portion of the assembly
which is rigidly attached to the boat and which serves
as the detachable locking means for securing the boom
to the boat is also a channel shaped member of slightly
larger cross-sectional dimensions than is the boom proper.
Referring now to the drawings for a detailed descrip
tion of the present invention, the anchor boom is indi
cated generally by the reference numeral 10. The rear
portion of the boom as shown in detail in FIG. 2 is sub
stantially channel-shaped in cross section including up
standing wall portions 11 and 12 and a connecting web
the lugs 23 and 24 to penetrate the full depth of slots 36
and 37. With the parts in this position, the lugs 21 and 22
can be lowered over the end of the base member. The
boom is then slid rearwardly until the lugs 21 and 22 abut
the base of the slots 34 and 35. The latch member 38 is
then moved to the position as shown in FIGS. 1 and 3,
and will prevent removal of the boom from the base until
the latch member is pivoted out of the way. Once the
anchor has been fully raised so that the stem lies within
the boom assembly and the ?ukes are abutting the down
wardly extending portion 20 of the boom, the latch may
then ‘move upwardly and the boom slid forwardly to en
able the lugs 21 and 22 to be swung clear of the base mem
ber. The boom and anchor together may then be slid
70 backwardly to free the lugs 23 and 24 from their slots 36
and 37 respectively and the entire assembly stored below
in an appropriate location.
During raising operations, the particular con?guration
of the roller member 14 becomes important. Usually the
anchor has a ring attached to the upper end of the stem to
form a convenient means for attaching the anchor line.
Furthermore, the ring is generally so arranged with re
spect to the anchor that when the line is taut, the ring lies
in a plane substantially parallel to the anchor ?ukes when
they ‘are pivoted against the stem. As the ring engages the
roller 14 therefor, the anchor line tension urges the ring
into .full engagement with the large diameter portions of
the roller, 16 and 17. This insures that the anchor stem
is guided over the small diameter center portion 15 and
held in that position by the tapering surfaces 18 and 19.
embodiment has been herein shown and described, appli
cant claims the bene?t of a full range of equivalents within
the scope of the appended claims.
I claim:
1. An anchor boom for detachable mounting on the
deck of a boat comprising in combination: an elongated
boom structure of substantially channel shaped cross sec~
tion; four outwardly projecting longitudinally spaced lugs,
two mounted on each side of the rear portion of said
boom; a channel member ‘of larger cross-section than said
boom for rigid attachment to the deck of a "boat in order
to receive and support said boom therein, said channel in
cluding oppositely facing notches in the channel member
The stem upon further upward movement slides into the
at the front and rear of said member adjacent the web, the
rear channel section of the boom until the ?ukes ‘abut the 15 longitudinal distance ‘between the base of said notches
downwardly turned portion 20 of the boom. This same
being slightly less than the longitudinal spacing of said
roller con?guration is also helpful in preventing the line
from walking up over the side walls of the boom during
either anchor lowering or raising operations.
Pivotally mounted to the side Walls of the boom ‘at the
outboard end thereof is a safety ring 40 which serves a
double purpose. First of all, if the anchor boom is acci
dentally dropped overboard, it can be retrieved because
the ring will retain it on the anchor line. Secondly, is
the event that the operator fails to shut off the winch when 25
lugs; and movable locking means for preventing removal
of said boom from ‘said channel members.
2. The combination de?ned by claim 1 in which said
locking means comprises an arm pivoted to a channel wall
of said member at a point immediately forward of said
rear-most notch.

the anchor is fully raised, the ring 40‘ positively prevents
the anchor from ?ying up over the end of the boom and
damaging the windshield or other parts of the boat.
From the foregoing, it will be apparent to those skilled
in the art that there is herein shown and described a new
and useful anchor handling apparatus. While a preferred
