Chain / rode stripper

I'm having some problems with my chain stripper . I have rope to chain splice . The problem is with the line . The stripper gets the chain out of th gypsy fine but sometimes it will not strip the line out . With this type of windlass should I use the spool for the line and the gypsy for the chain only .Most of the time it will strip the line but occasionally it will hang up .

My combo rode gypsy has small teeth or barbs that act to grab the line portion of the rode. I can't tell from that shot, but it looks like a chain-only gypsy to me.

IT looks like an older model built just for chain , you will have to transfer the line when hauling line.

If its not blowing and you have moved over the anchor simply stepping on the anchor rode is usually enough for the transfer.

Thanks . Getting the line portion of the rode into the hawse hole is kinda cumbersome from the drum side and takes some time . Once I hit the chain it's no problem . Might be time to go to all chain or update my gypsy to a combination .

Mule, I think you either need to use the drum on the left to haul in your line or get a new wildcat as the the one on the right is designed for all chain rode. You have a combo windlass but need a combo wildcat. Not a bad combination to have really for your particular boat.

In most coastal cruising the line would not be subject to wave action washing it off the deck.

Our solution is to simply figure 8 the line on deck with a couple of short snoters to keep it moveable.

The water dries quickly and its ready to set in an instant , with no fear of hockles as it refuses to come up a tiny line hole.

We stow the line below when not using the boat , but get it up on deck before departing the dock.

Some boats use Dorades as line handlers to stow the line .

The line rides thru the chain stopper easily , which holds the anchor chain ( a few ft) from departing underway.

Anchored the line is secured to a bollard , not the Hyd capstan.
