Anchor Roller on bow

Just purchased a Newport28 (having moved up from a Tanzer 22) and loving every moment of it. Unfortunately however, I could not get out of the way of gale force winds before she could be hauled out for the winter. A line snapped and the anchor roller on the bow ground huge chunks of the dock and folded over like a burrito. Should I not find a way to bend it back, is there someplace that I could purchase a new assembly/ This, as you know will be a huge proposition as the stays also attach to this hulking chunk of stainless steel.

Any suggestions?

I would be hesitatant to expect it to maintain it's strength after being rebent. I think you're going to need to have one fabricated, or possibly find one from another boat that has been junked.

I agree and thought of that as well. But the portions that hold the strength have not been damaged, just the portion of the fitting that hangs to port that hold the roller for the anchor, the rest seems secure.

Any leads on fabrication shops or junked Newports?

Thanks for your reply, any commetn is extremely helpful.

If it's a non-structrual part that's bent, you may be okay. If you have to take it off the boat though, I would take it in to a fabricator that works with stainless steel and at least have them check it over.

I'd probably remove it and take it to a tool and die maker, possibly a foundry, and ask them to rebend it for you. They will be able to do this without imparting any brittleness or temper to the material.

You may also be able to cut/grind away the damaged/bent parts, and have something fabricated that will bolt onto the existing remaining parts.

This would avoid having to remove the stem fitting (probably a nasty and difficult job). You may be able to drill and tap the stem fitting to accept your new roller. Alternativle you could cut away the damaged bits in such a way to incorporate one of the standard bow roller assemblies sold by West Marine and others. Some of the longer ones would allow you to fasten the inboard end through the deck.
(with the appropriate reinforcement and backing plates, of course)
