Here are two pictures of my efforts to extend the retaining pin holes on the bow anchor roller of my PSC34. One is of the plates that extend the holes for the 44 lb Bruce. The other is of the retaining pin (the spare, I made three). I'm sorry that the stainless is a bit rusty and that the teak is unvarnished, but every time we start to do something cosmetic, we just go sailing instead. Right now we are anchored in Miami on our way to the Bahamas having left New Bern, NC in late January.

Very nice Bill. That doesn't look too hard to accomplish.

Does anyone have photos of the Rocna on an extended sprit/anchor platform such as is found standard on the PSC 31 and 40, and optionally on the 34/37?

P.S. Johnharch and SD, thanks for the feedback on the Rocna sizing. Much appreciated.

Bill,
Nice retrofit idea. I believe thats gonna work on our bow roller arrangement as opposed to drilling a new hole in the anchor. Ordered a model 15 (33#)Rocna today from our West Marine. I'm getting it for my wife's anniversary gift! (her idea)
The folks at Sun Coast Marine (Rocna dealer) verified that the 33# would be more than adequate for our 34 and thought the next size up would be overkill.

I'd also like to see if anyone installed these on a 31. I bought a 15Kg Manson Supreme from Defender last year and had to ship it back because I couldn't figure out how to make it fit the bow.

We have installed and deployed our new Rocna 15 anchor. Sits nicely on the bow roller and deploys nice and clean when releasing the brake on the windless. So far we are pleased. Opted to lash it to the bow platform as opposed to drilling another hole in shank. Rocna does not reccomend using pin as they claim it could bend and jam if dunking anchor in a seaway. Thanks for all the feedback.

Re the requests for pics on installations with projections ('sprits and the like), plus more info along the lines of Norstar's comment above, please do reference the Rocna Knowledge Base at:
www.rocna.com/kb

Under "Anchors", specifically those articles under "Bow roller compatibility".
