I emailed Pursuit customer service the other day on this issue, really just wondering if they'd had any other complaints about the bow pulpit on these models (or any other for that matter).  They emailed back yesterday saying they were looking into it and would get back to me.  As soon as I hear anything, I'll post it here.  Like I said before, I'm not expecting much.  It is what it is and I'll learn to live with it by using some sort of chafing gear or just cleating the rode to one of the other bow cleats and bypassing the fairlead.  I'm surprised this is happening on such a well-made boat, but I guess nothing is perfect.

Pursuit emailed me today. Chris Sweeney, the customer service rep, said he was still looking into the problem, hadn't forgotten about me, and would contact me as soon as he digs something up.  Just wanted to update anyone in case there was any interest.

Can post a picture of the area that is causing the chafing?  If it is the part that angles down then you may want to add a small piece of starboard and let the rode hit that instead of the SS mount.  Just a thought.

I'll try to take a picture tomorrow and post it.  It's the two plates that support the bow roller.  When the boat yaws or lies at an angle to the rode from wind or current, the chafing occurs.  I'll take a picture to show you.

I'm starting to believe that my anchor line might be defective.  I was pulling up the anchor today and chunks of the line are just pulling off of it as it was coming up through the fairlead.  The edges of the fairlead are sharp, but not that sharp.  I just purchased this line about 3 mos. ago from West Marine.  I'm going to call them Monday and see if this could be the case and if they would replace it.  Wishful thinking, I'm sure, but it's worth a try.  When I bought the line, I noticed it was much stiffer than it usually is when new.  I should have made them take it from a new spool but who'd have thought New England Ropes line would be bad.

Don't know if it relates but the line on my 2870 (01) was wrapping around the windlass capstan. It was caused by the part called a "Fleming" that had broken (it was hardened nylon). My thought is that if the line was pinching or rubbing, because the area that the line runs through was changed, it could possibly cause chafing. I was able to order a new "Fleming" through West Marine. It was not expensive, but kind of a pain to install. The part # was in the manual/parts catalog for the windlass.

Current Rode is 20ft chain then line.

It's just the straight fairlead over the pulpit through the roller.  There is no windlass nor anything else to cause chafing.  It's either that the edges of each side of the fairlead are too sharp or the line is bad.  Personally, I believe it's both.  I know that those edges are sharper than they should be.  The boat is constantly yawing back and forth while at anchor which causes the line to chafe on those edges.  I was out Saturday and, I'm telling you, within about ten minutes the anchor line was chafed about halfway through one strand of the three strand nylon.  It's really aggravating, especially since that anchor line was pretty expensive and it's being rendered more and more useless as time goes on.  As I said on an earlier post, I'll just not use the fairlead and cleat it to one of the other bow cleats, though I shouldn't have to do that.

Take a picture of your bow showing your anchor set up for us. It would be easier for us to comment if we could see how you have the rode coming from the locker to the cleat and then over the roller.

I can take a picture but it's really pretty straightforward.  The anchor line leads right from the locker to the center cleat straight out over the roller.  The chafing occurs as the boat yaws back and forth.  The yawing is pretty significant, which is something else I was thinking about.  I've never had a boat that yawed on the hook like this one does.  Maybe it's the trim as I've noticed my boat's stern sits lower in the water, relative to the water line, than yours and alot of others.  If you still have the picture, check it out.  She's obviously heavy by the stern, though I don't know why as there is no additional rigging on this boat.  Everything is how she came from the factory, other than the electronics, and I assume she was designed for those Yamaha four strokes.  Any comments/observations regarding that?

Where is it rubbing?  If it is caused from the sides you could line the opening of the pulpit with starboard.  Just cut a few small pieces and screw them to the inside of the pulpit.  Make them a little deeper than the current SS so the rode rides on the starboard and not the SS edge.
