Powder coating anchor

Iíve been thinking about getting my anchor, windlass gypsy and drum powder coated. I can get all three done for around $150 total. Is it worth the effort?

Greetings,
Mr. PM. MY opinion is just clean them up and give the anchor a shot of galvanizing spray: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Ole...5838/100142963
The gypsy and drum might benefit from a coat of the same...$150 is 50+ gallons of fuel.

Powder coating is an awesome coating, hard but brittle. Under abrasion it will last forever, but very easy to chip. The layer will delaminate and blister at the base metal surface.
In your case, I would recommend a fresh coat of paint and it will need touch up every year but it is cheap and can be reapplied as needed.

I would not do it. I think it will chip off.

I used two part epoxy floor paint (left over from a construction job) on my anchor. It helped to shed mud and was relatively cheap.

Good call.
Where I used to work we had an epoxy powder coat line. Since I could, I had some swim platform ladder brackets done. (they were on top of the platform)
They didn't stay nice for very long.

I would do it to the drum but I’d cold galvanize the anchor.

No.
I’m flipp’in back and forth.
What color? Or colors? I suspect you’re look’in for the look .. beyond just general maint. If so powdercoat. You can touch up w some other tough coating. I think the anchor will do much better than the gypsy. I don’t think you had the “winch housing” listed.

What I’d do if it was my boat is PC the anchor, winch drum, and housing but hot galvanize the gypsy.

I see that’s not a Danforth. What bottoms do you have there? Sand? I wouldn’t spend the money on it unless it’s performance was very good. I suspect it is as I think you’ve had that Dan type for some time.

One last question ... do you use the winch w chain on the winchdrum?
If you PC the anchor be sure and tell the powdercoaters that the anchor does not come apart.

Eric we have sandy mud here. The anchor works pretty darn good for this. I don't put the chain on the drum, just the 3/4" line. As far as color goes I was thinking black on everything and leaving the windlass housing white.,but open for suggestions. I'm not planning on removing the windlass ,the paint on it is in decent shape.

Black would stick our too much.
Suggestion? Yes. I saw a boat at a wood boat show that had an old Dreadnought anchor and it was powdercoated a fairly light greenish grey. It blended in w the boat and most people probably didnít even notice it. Of course I did.

3/4Ē line? I thought I was overkill w 5/8thsĒ. Your boatís a bit heavier than mine though.

Found the pic of the grey/green anchor.

Nice machinery-grey color. I wonder if the owner is an ex-Navy man
