No mate it doesn't require a special roller.
My original bronze bow rollers had smaller cheek plates and I wanted something with a bit more side cover and a security bar.
After all they were 17 years old and I had them cast when I built the boat , the rollers were also bronze and had just about worn out.

Have allways had twin bow rollers but only ever have one anchor riged for deployment.
There is a reef pick rigged with retrieval float , 15 mts chain and 500 ft 22 mm silver rope stored in the port half of the anchor locker.
All other spare anchors and chain are stored in the lazzerette.
Cheers
Benn
