Maybe I missed something but why not using something elegant something like in the picture? boat surely deserves it 8)

For the type of anchor I want to use, the most elegant off-the shelf anchor rollers look like the Anchorlift unit pictured below. Sitting on top of an anchor sprit, it will look bulky. Recessing is within the sprit would reduce the bulky look, but if going to that trouble, why not build your own setup?

The one I posted popped up after I googled on your type of anchor

Thanks Peter, it sure looks nice in the photo.

Unfortunately, the camera angle is a little deceptive.

The smallest available version of the make and model in the photo is close to 48" long and is designed to carry an anchor 65 to 110 lbs.

Skinnydip's 15 lb anchor would only take up about 12" of the 48" available!

I'm enjoying the pic of your bent ply seats as a screen saver at the moment. 8)

Life's getting in the way of boat building at the moment. But I did manage to steal a few hours this afternoon.

Modified the anchor sprit mock-up to my latest thinking, as recorded in recent posts, to put the thinking to the test.

Failure. Further modifications. More testing. More failures.

With the friction and lumpiness of shackles, chain, thimbles etc., there is no way can I pull the pick up by hand.

Would require a winch and momentum over obstructions, like happens on our 44 footer Great Sandy, to get the pick up.

On a well conceived and executed 21 footer, a winch should not be necessary.

Frustrated. Confused. Need to sleep on it. :?

On my R/C tugboat that I installed a working anchor it had a pocket to stow in. It was a standard navy style and the flukes always pointed away from the pocket so I had to build a catch to point the flukes towards the hull just before it goes into the pocket. And it used 3 feet of chain. Took a few hours to figure it out. Just keep thinking and you will get it figured out.

Don't even ask about how a flexible soda straw became the chain guide!

GB,

I think you have to have a large radius OR a roller at the contact point of chain and sprit. If you have some PVC try cutting some sections to fit into the sprit and see if making a formed round over will work. I think 2” is as small as you would want to go.

Oh okay I didn't get that, it would be nice finding something similar for your anchor though
I'm honored about the seat screen saver 8)

Thanks for the support OrangeQuest, poleposition, Jaysen and Peter. It's appreciated.

I may have found an off-the-shelf bow roller that will do the job. The nearest distributor is about an hour's drive away, and I'll be heading that way in the next week or so. I'll take the Manson Supreme anchor with me, and see if it and the roller are compatible.

Spent this afternoon laying fibreglass cloth or tape in sections of the interior not yet protection sealed.

I am watching and waiting for what you do for the anchor. And there is a better than even chance I will copy you without the least little bit of shame :wink:
