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..

Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
