Re: Anchor Bow Roller for 30' Sloop

Sailon, you knew I was going to post some pics of my P30's bow roller, right?

I can't comment on where it came from, or how it was installed, but it worked well. I recall there was a plywood backing plate under the deck.

I would sit on the foredeck and had an easy time pulling up the anchor, chain, and rode. The trick was to sit right down and use core strength. The rode went down a fitting in the deck. The weight of the rode was enough to keep it moving into the anchor locker as I pulled up the hook.

I used a 10kg bruce, and had a second 10kg bruce (stowed below) for storms (2 anchors off the bow). Went through some big storms with those. No problems. I anchored a lot.

If I were to do it again, I might use a 15kg bruce, and more chain. But thats going to be a bit harder to pull up by hand.

If money is not a big issue, Rocna is the way to go.

My bow roller was not quite long enough. The tip of the bruce often touched the bow. I had a whole scheme to hold it, but a couple more inches on the roller would have been much better.

Overall though, it was a decent setup. I could walk forward, then it took like 5 seconds to release the safety chain and drop the hook.

Re: Anchor Bow Roller for 30' Sloop

I have a 3 inch wide aluminum channel with a roller on the end on my Pearson 30. Had to trim the channel a bit on one side but it is solid. If i can find the a picture I will post it.
