Default Anchor Roller Issue

Because the Anchor roller is straight out, my anchor won't drop without having to climb up and give it a little kick. Does anyone else have this problem? How did you creatively fix this?

Thanks.

The bow roller is dictated by both the type of pulpit (if any at all) and the type of anchor. In your case, your looking for a 'self-launching' bow roller, which would be typically used with a windlass. What kind of anchor do you have? Make, Model, Size, type, etc.

Is your bowroller like this one?:

yep, that's the bowroller.

I'm using a 13 or 15 pound fluke anchor.

I don't like the way that Maxum molded a channel to mount the bow roller into. While it gives a nice clean line on teh deck, they used a lot of 2" bow roller's making it tough to replace. What you're probably looking for is something like this self-launching equivalent:

What I ended up doing was milling a piece of ipae then selaing it, then using it to fill the groove, then used 3m 4000 to seal it and the bolts for the bow roller. The bow roller is wider than the groove, so the groove and sealed ipae are completely covered. I'm strongly considering going back and fiberglassign the whole thing in.
