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

Med- I don't use a swivel with all chain. Rarely does the anchor not come right up into the roller and we anchor 90% of the time. Like Killarney, I think it untwists as it's coming up. A swivel is a weak spot and it's just the luck of the draw which way the anchor will be facing.
