Rocna Bow Roller

Have purchased a Rocna 20 (44#) for our Gozzard 36; however, the new bow roller for the anchor is a bust. Has anyone a suggestion for a good quality, off-the-shelf bow roller that will mate well with the Rocna? I've tried a beautifully made Anchorlift (90104) recommended to me, but the bail is too short/low and stops the anchor 4-5" short of the cheeks. Something that would pull the anchor snug and closer to the bowsprit plank is needed, and a long channel to keep the chain off of the teak is preferred.

Thanks

Re: Rocna Bow Roller

Take a look at the Windline CRM-1. I think it might work for you.
https://windline.com/index.php?route...&product_id=84


Imtra also sells one that I think might work.
Anchoring Detail - Roller for Bruce, Claw & Delta up to 60 lbs.


If you decide to buy either a Windline or Imtra roller I'd love the opportunity to quote you on it.

Re: Rocna Bow Roller

On my Gozzard 44 I was able to fit a similar Manson 80# onto the bow roller by spreading apart the SS end piece enough to guide the shank through. Your roller assembly may not be the same.

Re: Rocna Bow Roller

Why don't you just buy an anchor without the roll bar (weed catcher scoop)? Easier than modifying your boat.

He already has the anchor.

He can return it or exchange it for something that will fit. Much easier than modifying the boat. There are now several new generation anchors available without the roll bar.
