I've had my 1998 Maxum 2300sc for over a year now and love it.
This is my first post here and hoping for some assistance in installing an anchor roller.
I use the boat at sea a lot and use the anchor a lot.
Its quite a heavy anchor, with some heavy duty chain and lots of rope.
Anchor works well.
I find when bringing it up by hand, the chain rubs along the side of the bow, ruining the fibreglass, so I'd like to solve this by hopefully installing a simple anchor roller.
I keep the anchor in the bow anchor locker, and would like to keep it that way to preserve the sporty appearance and clutter on the bow as we use this area for seating often.
Anyhow, I've attached a pic of my boat and a PDF with a bunch of bow rollers I've found on ebay.
I was hoping someone who may have done a similar installation on a similar boat may be able to offer some advice as to which one to purchase, as my boat is 2 hours drive away - i'd like to purchase the roller and install it at the same time I am recommissioning the boat for the new season in 2 weeks time.
Not sure how best to mount it, which one to buy etc.
Due to the nav light right in the centreline, and the curves of the fibreglass on the bow and the space, I am unsure if any of these will work? Would I mount it directly in the centre of the bow, or perhaps off-centre to the port/starboard side?
Any helps/Advice/tips much appreciated.
