Re: Does anyone know of a galvanized anchor swivel that will actually swivel?

Have you tried doing without the swivel? I don't use one and have not noticed any particular problems with chain getting tangled - and we are anchored a lot. When I hoist the anchor it seems to untwist on the way up. I let it hang below the roller for 30 seconds or so to make sure that it is untwisted..
