Rode Rider (aka Anchor Sentinal)

Hello, would appreciate any advice the group can provide. I''m putting together an ABI "rode rider" set-up and am looking for advice in its use. I''m doing this ''cause of the occasional wrap on my wing keel. Boat is a CS-40 (39.3'' LOA, displ approx 18K lbs) with a 35 lb CQR, 40'' chain & 200'' rode. 2-questions: 1) after the anchor is set (I try for at least 7:1 scope), how far do you lower the "rider" (e.g. to the bottom, just above, etc?), and 2) what is an appropriate weight (I''ve got up to 20lbs of lead). Thanks for any input. Regards..Sketch

Rode Rider (aka Anchor Sentinal)

AKA"keltie". You don''t want it sitting on the anchor-- the whole purpose of the sentinnel is to increase the catenary in your anchor line,(which increases the holding power of your anchor)therefore, I would try to put it somewhere close to halve the distance between your bow and the bottom-possibly even more, you will have to play with this. I am also assuming that you are using a combination chain/rope rode for your anchor line. I am not sure however if you will be able to prevent keel wrap All the time by using a sentinnel. 20lbs of lead should be more than adequate, assuming you are using a properly sized rode. Hope this helps.
