Thanks guys.  Lots of good information.  You're right about the system approach, and also planning for the future installation of the windless.  One of the things that I like about this forum is getting so many ideas.  I'm planning out what the system will look like so that all the components fit when it's done, then buying things as the budget allows.  Thanks.

Scotty : When you get time to install an anchor roller, you might want to look at my Mainsheet article (May 1995) and when you install a windlass you might want to do the same(if you want it INSIDE the anchor well).
At least these will give you some ideas and what you are getting ready to encounter.  A few thoughts

Thanks Guys for the suggestions.  Yes, I've spent a lot of time looking at the Projects page, the Wicki and Mainsheets.  I've pretty much sussed out my approach (stainless steel 90* angle inside the well).  I like to take my time planning projects.  Actually I really enjoy looking at all the projects.  I find lots of things that I just hadn't thought about.  I also have to winnow out the things that I can't get to - only so much time.  I encourage any other new owners (like myself) to spend a lot of time on this website, it has really helped me.

Thanks for all the input everyone.  I just bought a Ronca 15 today.  I'm stoked.  I'm going to hang it on my "toy" roller for a while and see how it works.  My next step is to buy chain.  In order to do that I need to look down the road (or is that rode?) for the windlass that I shall buy in a few months.  I've looked at a lot of the ideas previously posted, and the projects pages.  At this point, I'm particularly interested in the Lewmar V700.  Ron, how has that product worked out for you?? Anyone else using one?

Scotty,
I perfer the windless with the gypsy and drum.  I disconnect the rode and use the drum for going up the mast, disconnecting and reconnecting the forstay, and other heavy lifting.  Just my 2 cents.

Scotty - it may have been said before but make sure you buy the right size chain if you are getting chain before you get a windlass.  I know mine maxes out at the 1/4" 6mm size.

 Scotty, if you go with the V1 as opposed to the V700, you have the ability to change the gypsy to accommodate 5/16 chain. The downside of the V1 is a bit more weight and bigger cable required...

Scotty : My V700 has worked flawlessly for the past 3 years.  You don't need 00# wire !
 
I'm quite satisfied that 1/4"High Tensile chain (breaking strength 7750lbs) is not the weak link in the ground tackle system.  A thought

Ron's right.

Don't wanna beat a dead horse, but just to repeat, try the anchor system sizing tables on Reply #6, here:  http://c34.org/bbs/index.php/topic,4990.0.html

Choose the system, then the chain, to suit your intended windlass.  Simple.

Just as a follow-up.   I replaced the "bail" on my anchor roller with a larger one from Garhauer.  Only $12 and now the Manson anchor sits flush on the roller without hitting the furler.

Joe:  do you have a size or part number?  I'm planning to do the same.

Thanks,

Yes, thanks to Craig.  Second item down, BB-2, on this hyperlink http://garhauermarine.com/catalog_process.cfm?cid=73 is what I bought and was perfect.   I was wrong.  Only $9.50!

Great idea! I'm going to order a bail from Garhauer as well. When I put my Rocna 20 on the bow, everything fit but the bail so I just took it off. It works OK without the bail but it would be reassuring to have one on there.

See post #19 below.  I did not take follow-up pictures when I replaced it but it sits nicely in the bowroller channel, easily self-deploys etc.  Pretty cheap fix and easy to do.
