Best anchor roller for a Newport 27?

I would really like to add a small anchor roller to the bow of my 1972 Newport 27 and I was wondering if anyone else had done so and would care to share some advice and/or pictures. The arrangement of the forestay and the anchor locker seems to be kind of inconvenient for adding a roller. So I was interested in seeing what others had done. Thanks.

I am hoping to add an anchor roller to my 1975 27. I have seen it done on a 1976 27. She had a roller furling, and the anchor roller is mounted alongside the baseplate of the roller furling and bolted to it. I don't have a roller furling, so I'm thinking of trying the AR-2 from Windline. It is just short enought that it might fit (4" base), though I might end up having to move a light. I will repost if it works out.
