Boat Anchor Rollers and Mounts
Before boat anchor rollers were invented, great care had to be taken when dropping and weighing anchor to avoid topside damage. These rollers provide a rolling surface by allowing users to stand wherever they can pull with the greatest efficiency. Another plus is that the rollers’ design creates sufficient lead for the anchor rode so it does not abrade stem fittings or chocks. The rolling action eliminates chafing as the line stretches which is a great way to protect your investment.
Another key component are anchor mounts. These cradle the anchor on the ship’s bow so it’s ready to be deployed. If your boat has a windlass, using an anchor mount is a given as these guide the anchor rode to the windlass gypsy. This configuration will also protect your hull and deck from being gouged by anchor chain.
Boat Anchor Rollers for Every Craft
For powerboats, anchor mounts are most often placed on their centerline. Sailboats have stem fitting, head stays, bow pulpits and furling drums which dictate different positioning for boat anchor rollers and mount placement. Position the mounts 4” to 8” to either side of the head stay. Align the mount above the toe rail with blocks, parallel to the boat’s centerline and in line with the windlass gypsy.
