Anchoring: Bow Rollers 

 

We at Mauri Pro Sailing carry the top Bow Rollers from Garhaur and Lewmar. Bow rollers from both brands will assist with providing a low friction surface for you to store and drop anchor while avoiding damage to the deck or tops of your boat. In addition to protecting your boat, Bow rollers allow you to deploy your anchor at short notice, allowing you to visit more anchorages and explore more locations with your boat. They also provide a fair lead for anchor rode, preventing excessive wear and tear on the line and the boat. When installing a Bow roller on a sailboat, it is important to consider the location of the forestay, furler, pulpit and bowsprits.

When combined with a windlass, an anclhor roller allows you to drop anchor without having to up up to the front of the boat, increasing your comfort and safety. These rollers fit the most combinations of flukes and mounting styles. Technical assistance is provided to fit you with the right bow roller to help you flawlessly drop anchor at a moments notice. When installing an anchor roller to accompany a windlass, be sure that the anchor roller is aligned with the gypsy.
