I've been passively browsing cruisersforum for a long time, and finally it's time for me to answer a question I can't find an answer to.
I'm upgrading my anchor
setup (Pearson 36-2) with a Rocna
20 (44lb) on 5/16" chain, but cannot for the life of me find which bow roller is going to be best. I guess that most people stick with whatever bow roller they already have, but in my case I have a pretty much non-existent roller so I'm adding a new one.
The information available online about rollers (with dimensions) seems pretty sparse, and the ones that claim to be suitable for anchors >44lb seem far too large. The WINDLINE URM-3 for example has an inside channel width of 3.5 inches ... a Rocna
has a very narrow shank and there's no way it needs 3.5 inches.
The windline narrow (https://windline.com/index.php?route...&product_id=83
) looks like it could be the best (with tabs to secure the "spade" part of the anchor
when it's fully home)... and there are a number of very similar ones available called "Universal anchor roller".
Does anyone have a Rocna 20 + roller setup that they can share photos of (with comments on how well it works for them)
