Conrad - I was just looking at the AnchorLift roller for our Rocna anchor.


To answer some other questions/posts - we normally use a 3/4" 25' snubber that is connected to a D ring at the waterline but we had not gotten that far in setting the anchor before we determined we needed to retrieve the anchor and move.


We normally have a Rocna 40 as our primary anchor and a Fortress 44 on the second bow roller and rode/windlass. I have not been happy with how the anchors store or retrieve. We tried the Fortress on the starboard roller that comes up through the pulpit instead of over the end, but the arms of the Fortress interfered with the Rocna so we swapped them.


I will look into the Lofrans, Ideal and Muir windlasses. Now that I am replacing the pulpit, it seems the ideal time to replace the windlass.


Cheers,

caltex is that rope or what that you are using as the snubber?

And as a general question, how do you hook the snubber to the chain itself? Do you pull back up on the anchor to get enough play in the chain to hook the snubber up?

Not very complicated at all. A rope runs through the eye and both ends go back up to the boat. The N72 behind us was using the same setup.

I use 3 strand, I think nylon. A regular stainless steel chain hook to connect it to the chain.

We have been very happy with ours; our Rocna 33 (73#) fits snugly and self launches perfectly.

Our local yard fabricated the support which was required due to the need to extend the rollers far enough away from the windlass to accommodate the anchor.
