bow rollers

we do not have an techinical information for the bow roller that was installed on the boat by the previous owner. the support plate is recessed into the bow. it is a dual anchor bow roller. we are interested in getting a second heavier anchor and are trying to figure out if the existing roller will support the load. Any ideas?

It would also help if you said what kind of boat you had. Chances are more than likely, if the bow chainplate is part of the bow roller you're looking at, that the work was custom for the previous owner, rather than a mass produced piece.

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.

it is a 2000 moody 46'. unfortunately when premier marinas purchased moody it is impossible to get any documentation from them. apparently they are still in transition mode. i will post the picture as soon as i can and thanks for your responses!

Nalani...There will be NO issue with the roller supporting a heavier anchor provided the roller was installed with decent backing plates rather than just bolts and washers. The Moody 46 is a robust boat and should have be designed far in excess of any anchoring loads which may be imposed by a heavier anchor.

Cam-

The only issue is that the bow roller was installed by a previous owner, not Moody....so the installation methods and quality of materials is in question. However, if the roller was designed as a custom part and includes the bow chainplate in the design, it is very likely to be more than sufficient for any reasonably sized anchor for that boat.

I think i confused the issue - since i don't have any tech spec's i am not sure whether it was indeed custom or standard installation. The owner customized a number of things.

Nalani...it doesn't matter. What matters is if it is installed CORRECTLY. Check the backing plates and take some pix when you can.

Ah ha - the famous prior owner "customized a number of things." Be patient and examine carefully - after 5 years, I am still removing "customizations."
