Rocna/MansonSupreme + Bowsprits ??!!??!!

I took a quick look to see if there are any threads that answer my question but I didnt find any sufficient.

I have a huge bowsprit (har har har), and I just bought one of the new generation anchors (rocna, MS, Wasi Bugal)–I wont say which one as I dont want to start up that same old conversation. Anyways, I am fishing for ideas on how to deal with my anchoring set up now... I have been toying with three ideas. Keep in mind that once the hook is in the water and scope is laid out, I have a bridle snubber set up passing through the hausholes and connected to the samson posts.
1-roller at the tip of the bowsprit
2-roller placed at 45* angle from fwd on bowsprit platform
3-roller placed on bullwark fwd of windless
4-(possibility) dropping cash and having a custom made roller fabricated which actually tilts the anchor and shank alow the bowsprit platform.

anyone had successes? pictures? other ideas???

thanks in advance...

Rocna has a section on options with bowsprits and various installation pictures here:
Common fit challenges (Rocna Knowledge Base)

Regardless of the brand you have...that may give you some ideas. (probably would be cheaper to trade for a Spade!)

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

I have a retractable bowsprit on my boat, and still have my Rocna 15 sitting on a bow roller. Here's a photo of the setup sans anchor.

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.
