    Anchor roller/windlass

    All,

    I have an 05 236. I think I would like to install a roller and possible a windlass. This is what I am thinking? Let me know if anyone else's has this setup and if they have any suggestions.

    Thanks,

    That’s a good price on the windless. I think you’d be happy with that setup. I’ve wanted to do that on my 220 but just can fork up the coin to do it.

    I think you'll be happier with the longer roller. I have your setup on a 2005 218CC and originally had the short one and switched to the longer 20" one. Keeps the anchor a little further away from the bow. Also, you can attach it a little further back. As you'll find out, it's a bitch getting to the forward bolts in the anchor locker. At least on the 218.

    The windlass and the auto pilot are the two best options you can get.

    Also, the picture doesn't show it but I have the same anchor as you are showing. Get quality 8 plait line or you'll have problems. I used 300' of Lewmar anchor line. Its a tight fit at first but after it's wet and settled down to the bottom, it works fine.

    In the description it says it's 19.5" long is there another one you recommend?

    Maybe the same. I thought I read something like 15 1/2" when I was looking earlier. Going back now I see in the description it show 18" if you go down further on the page and look at the measurements.

    I'd double check but I went out and took a quick measurement on mine earlier and it was somewhere around 20 or 20 1/2". Definitely not 18".
