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

I doubt that would go well especially considering how many hours of trouble it was when the swivel malfunctioned the one time. Here in the Pacific Northwest shifting tides are the norm and in the summer fluky shifting winds are the norm. We probably do 1-2 circles an hour around our anchor up here.
Kilarney, enjoy Indonesia! I lived there for a year and the people are fantastic!
