Re: Opinions on anchor swivels

I like keeping things simple and since I see no practical reason for a swivel I don't use one. We have all chain rode and generally don't have a problem with the anchor, although once in awhile I'll have to give it a pull with the boat hook to align it properly in the roller. I'm pretty sure I would have to do that almost every time with a swivel.
