Re: Anchor and Windlass

Fed up with the anchor chain constantly jumping off the roller and jamming whenever retrieving the pick in less than perfectly calm conditions, I had the local stainless workshop bend a length of 12mm ss bar and weld it to the front of the roller frame. Less than 50 Euro has saved me a load of stress recovering the anchor in less than ideal conditions.

Re: Anchor and Windlass

Hi Chris,
To stop the stock hitting the top of the cutout, I have moved the roller further out and cut away some of the glass. Currently sitting out a deluge in Corfu, we plan to winter in Marmaris.
Regards
Gary

Re: Anchor and Windlass

BTW the standard anchor as supplied is a Lewmar 16KG KOBRA II. In my view a little small.

Re: Anchor and Windlass

I like to sleep at night so when I purchased my new anchor 8 months ago I went for BIG. Someone said kept going up in size until everyone stops laughing. Anyway I purchased a Rocna 33gk (73lbs). I love it in that it sets first time every time and once down I stay put no matter what it blows. However the only issue is that it just doesn't fit the Lipari well.

The shank is very long and when coming up unless I put a foot on the chain it bashes into the top of the anchor locker just where it enters the boat, and often will come up the wrong way around meaning I have to reach down through the tramp and turn it. The other issue is when up the roll bar pushes up onto the bottom of the trampoline and has started to chafe the tramp. I don't have the bow sprit but imagine it would not fit with the bow sprit either.

I still love the holding power of this thing but wanted a better solution. I have just purchased a Rocna Vulcan 33kg. Same holding power that I can tell and it solves most of the issues I have. No roll bar so the tramp isn't impacted, the new curved shank means it doesn't bash the deck on the way up and the curve also means it can't come up the wrong way. Happy days.

I certainly don't want to start anchor wars but if you have a FP and looking to change anchors these are a nice fit

Anyone want to buy a standard Rocna 33? Bit big for a spare

Re: Anchor and Windlass

As I was reading your post I thought, this guy needs a Vulcan. You beat me to it.
