Anchor Bow Roller

  • Boat Type: Boat Type

We've had successs in the Pacific Northwest with this 7.5kg (16.5lb) SS-Bruce anchor w/ Lewmar Roller #66440016.
- Loading the anchor into the roller is very consistent with the SS-Swivel at the end of the anchor shank.
- The Rode (30' chain and 250' rope) is permanently connected to the anchor for fast deployment.
- We cut a small opening in the forward end of anchor locker with a SS-Clamshell cover.
- We also installed a line cleat inside the locker, to secure the anchor in place and tie off the bitter end.
