I purchased a Rocna
25kg for my boat
and had planned to modify my bow roller within my Bowsprit
I'm wondering if a better approach would be to mount a bow roller to the side of the Bowsprit
? It seams to me that:
- It would be easier.
- It would get the load back to the boat structure as opposed to out on the Bowsprit.
- Lateral support to redirect the chain rode would have to be installed.
Does anyone have experience with this sort of setup?
Best to Starboard or Port?
What are the pro's and con's?
Any gotcha's that anyone is aware of?
Let me know please.
