No windlass...its on the list. I believe the rope I have is 5/8 though. I am going to use the 'old' chain w new hardware and I'm adding a bow roller. Thanks for the info!

Cam-

I wasn't sure if he had a windlass or not, but did want to mention it since if he had one or was planning on upgrading to a windlass at some point, it would be better to have the rode that will fit it, rather than having to replace the rode.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Dog,

What size Rocna for a Gemini 105Mc?
Where is the best price today shipped to Florida?
There is a WM 25 miles or so from me.

Thanks

I'd go with a Rocna 15 for your boat. If you have the same philosophy about ground tackle I do, you might upsize to the Rocna 20... though the 15 would probably hold your boat in most conditions. I have the Rocna 15 on my boat, and it is probably a bit overkill. Maine Sail uses one as the primary on his CS36T IIRC, and that boat is a bit longer and heavier than your Gemini, but you have a bit more windage than he does.

You don't need one shipped to Florida, as West Marine now carries Rocnas, and you can order from West Marine and pick it up at the store—which sure beats shipping it from the Pacific NorthWest, where the North American manufacturer of the Ronca anchors is located.

Refer Rocna sizing recommendations:

I'd say that SD's comments above are on target.

Thanks,

When I went to the Rocna site for my length and moving up one on the chart for a cat I ended up with a 25 and there was one more option (in blue) higher still.

OOPS!

Read the chart wrong. Biggest listed - the 25 (55 lbs)

Therapy, looking at the Rocna chart, a 34' monohull at 4 t is at the very low end of the range for the 15 (which is rated for a 36'er at 7 t), if that's where you are - one size up is the 20, and even the 15 at this point has a lot of overhead to allow for a cat. The 15 would be adequate for most usage; go with the 20 if you want to be super conservative, and if the rest of your gear is matched to it (or you're prepared to also upgrade it).

The cat is a Gemini. 8600 lbs from the factory, so let's say 11k max.
I'll check the rest of the gear. The chain looks really thin looking. Advertised as HT but don't know the size.
I haven't closed on the boat yet.

Therapy—

I'd recommend going with 5/16" G43 chain, if the windlass gypsy can handle it. Good luck on the survey and seatrial.
