Anchor Roller for Pilot 30

I have a 2004 Pilot 30. The original anchor has been replaced with a Lewmar Delta anchor (14 lbs I believe). The chain comes up through a hole in the pulpit but there is no anchor roller - so the anchor digs into the surface of the pulpit. I would like to install an anchor roller - and wonder if any one has and if so - what anchor roller did you install? I looked on Lewmar - there is one for about $180 but it probably will not work with this layout. And of course the current anchor does not work with the original tensioner - so if people have ideas there - I would appreciate that information. I am in the process or replacing my Lewmar V700 windlass which broke because I did not tie up the anchor while underway and the weight of the anchor finally snapped the spindle form the motor that fits into the gear. Such is life.

That is really weird that you have no roller. I do not believe these boats, either the 30 Pilot II or the 30 Pilot come without one installed. Is there no evidence of a previous roller bracket? The photo shows my 30 Pilot II's two roller brackets and roller from the underside.
