Bow Roller?

I am looking for a bow roller that will work with a 22-35lb Delta Fast set anchor, and work with the anchor being pulled up by a Lewmar Windlass. Anyone have a recomendation? I have looked online and there seems to be so many to choose from. Thanks.

Columbia....there are many rollers that will work with Deltas...especially since they drop pretty well with the tip weight concentration. The real question is which roller will FIT on YOUR boat and bow/windlass configuration and how much overhang you want.
After you know the room you have to work with then yu can check here for a variety of options and complete technical/dimensional specs:

The real problem will be having a bow roller that is of the right dimensions to properly fit on your foredeck. Having a properly fastened and secured bow roller is important, as it takes a fairly heavy load when you're at anchor.

I agree that a custom one, of the right materials is not going to be cheaper than an off-the-shelf one. It'll probably work and fit better...but it will definitely cost more.

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.
