Hi Folks, I am the proud owner of a new Rochna anchor,unfortunately it won,t fit on the bow rollers of our Brewer with my old Delta. I was thinking about an extension to place the new anchor in front of the old anchor. Any ideas?

Hi Folks, I forgot to add to my previous post that I have to replace the black anchor rollers on the bow of our Brewer, but I can't find a replacement . They have a 5/8 " shaft and 4.5 inches wide ,3" in diameter. Any ideas where I can get a replacement rollor?

Hi, Sandy and Mike. I've eyed the rollers on our anchor platform and wondered if boat trailer rollers would fit if I decide to replace them. Never tried it though.

We have a Bruce on the platform with our Rochna. The Bruce's cradle is angled to port so it clears the Rochna. If you're not already set up that way some welding would be required.

I don't know how standard the platforms were so your solution may have to be custom.

Fair winds!

I replaced my bow rollers with trailer rollers. They lasted about 3 years with moderate use. In the end I replaced them because they were getting rutted - they didn't actually fail yet. The rollers I used were a pale yellow color. They were not as wide as the original rollers, so I got a 4 1/2" hole saw and cut disks out of a cheap poly cutting board, put them on the spindle on either side of the roller to ensure that the chain would not ride off into the gap and get stuck. I also had contacted a machine shop when we were in the DC area to get a quote for replacement Delrin rollers, but they wee about $300 apiece. The trailer rollers were about $6 apiece, the cutting board was under $10...

He who will not risk cannot win.

We carry a Rocna and Bruce on our Whitby 42. Removed the roller on the stbd side and had a machine shop make a channel with two rollers which we then attached to the boat with the same pin used to hold the roller we removed. This holds the anchor out further. It also pivots to make deploying and recalling the anchor (65 pounds) easier. Love that Rocna!

Hard to explain so have tried to attach a photo. (The Bruce doesn't appear in the photo as it has been removed to be regalvanized. All those extra lines are for the mooring system we are now. The Rocna is up on deck.)
