Feedback on bow rollers please?
We are about to purchase two bow rollers for our 36’ Islander Freeport. We have a 45lb CRQ and are planning on purchasing a 44lb Bruce type anchor. I do not know much about bow rollers. I like the Kingston “For CQR plow anchors up to 45 lbs. 3/16" 304 Stainless steel”
Also the “3-Wheeled Bruce or Claw anchors up to 44 lbs”
“Designed to self-launch Bruce or Claw anchors up to 44 lbs ”
The “Designed to self-launch” feature I am also not sure of. It sounds nice but is it what we would want for cruising. We will be cursing the Pacific side of Central America.
I do not expect to be able to have two anchors on rollers at the same time because of room. We do not have a bowsprrint.
Also what about the pins to hold the anchor in place when under sail in seas?
Seems good to me but does it work? Do they rattler arround etc?
