My boat has a bent anchor roller. It came to us that way and wasn't noticed until the first time deploying the anchor when we discovered the forward roller is seized. The bent portion is the self-launching piece that swivels up from the base plate. The way it is racked has captured the forward roller and is holding it so it won't rotate. If I could get the roller out, I'd shave 1/16" off each end of it and probably be back in business, but unfortunately someone welded both ends of the forward roller pin to the side plates (not the original factory setup). Beneteau can replace the whole assembly for $600 but I'm sure a stainless fabricator could repair it for far less. I'd appreciate recommendations for a fabricator. I'm willing to ship the piece or have it repaired locally so long as it could be turned around quickly.

The stainless pin at the center of my photo with the cotter pins can slide out of the base plate and the whole stainless swivel easily removed. Maybe the best thing is to have it replicated in a heavier gauge stainless than to bother unbending it. I now have a larger anchor on than came from the factory and it would be nice to modify the roller so the new anchor fit a little better.

Sounds like a great idea but any idea where I can have something like that fabricated at reasonable cost?
