    Bow rail capacity?-gctid405205

    I have been looking for some place to store my anchor other than my cuddy. I found the PM-2 from Windless and it stows it verticle on the bow rail. Its only a 9 pound hooker anchor, but the PM-2 is rated for up to 35#. Does anyone know what kind of rating bow rails have? Or does anyone else use the PM-2?

    I would look into a bow roller that allows you to leave the anchor there.

      I used to have a setup that kept my anchor on the rail. It is hard on the rail, especially when its pounding seas. I have had the anchor go for a test flight 1 time, luckly i used a plastic coated anchor at the time for some reason so it didnt do damage.

      I would recommend a roller as well if its possible.

          There are a TON of rollers to look through. I have never actually swapped a roller (though I should for my anchor). All I can tell you is there are different style rollers for different anchors. So be sure to choose the one that suites your anchor type.

            This type works great:

              Ditto again.

              Look at the set up that Dean links us to.
