Anchor roller

Published date: December 1, 2019
  • Boat Type: Boat Type

I mounted the custom anchor roller from Blue Water Yachts on "Sea Breeze." Works great and was not too difficult to install. The bow light is relocated onto a special bracket on the anchor roller. I had to extend (actually I replaced) the wire supplying current to the light. The original was not long enough. By carefully disconnecting the original light wire I was able to attach a 16-gauge marine wire to the original crimp terminals inside the light. The only splice is inside the boat above the v-berth. Some day I'll rewire from there back to the distribution panel.

    I found it annoying that you couldn't close the hatch on the anchor locker when you had some of the rode still in the locker. I ground out a notch in the hatch cover so that the rode could pass through with the cover closed. We have an anchor mount o...
