Thanks chaps, I found a nice dinky pair of anodized aluminium fairleads, just under 75mm long for about £22 and they are now screwed on the boat. I suspect they are lighter than a pair of glass-filled nylon fairleads of the same size.

They got their first try out on Monday, anchoring down at the far end of the reservoir for a laze in the sun, I have to say that anchoring with sails up is an interesting experience and we found quite a few things not to do next time.
