swivel, a Kong, had worked fine for years. A few weeks ago after anchoring
several times in a mud bottom, the swivel developed bad behavior.
The worst was the anchor
(a 15 kg Vulcan) would come up twisted backwards and the swivel refused to turn around. I had to grab a boat
hook and force the anchor into the correct orientation.
I ended up taking the swivel apart and cleaning
out the residual mud. Havenít tested it yet.
How often does an anchor swivel need to be serviced? Just when it stops swiveling, or sooner?
