Re: anchor rode issues

Just change the gypsy to a rope-chain one , they are cheap and readily available in different sizes.

Rope–chain windlasses use a single gypsy with normal chain pockets on the perimeter and V–shaped grooves in the center to handle rope. This requires that your anchor rope be spliced directly to the last link of chain.
