WEST MARINE
Rope/Chain Anchor Rode Packages for Windlasses

Now you can get a rode package customized for the rope/chain gypsy on your windlass without the customized price! Packages include Acco High-Test chain and West Marine's Premium Three-Strand Anchor Line, joined with a strong, low-profile rope-to-chain splice. Our tests show that a proper rope-to-chain splice retains about 95% of the strength of the unspliced line, so you can feel comfortable using a splice instead of a shackle, as long as you check the splice regularly for chafe.

    Loved how it came packaged - in a Plastic Bucket. Once i loaded the rode i used the bucket for my secondary/backup rode and anchor.

      Comments about Rope/Chain Anchor Rode Packages for Windlasses:

      Was a great replacement for the old rode I had that kept jamming
      in my windlass. It spooled right in to my windlass straight from the bucket
      without getting jammed. I place the bucket a fair distance from the boat so the rode would stay
      tight as I spolled it in.

            Comments about Rope/Chain Anchor Rode Packages for Windlasses:

            I marked the rope every 25' so I knew how much was left below water. I was not super accurate but felt I was at least 10' short on the rope. I measured the chain and was 6" short of the 20'. While minor it did make me feel I have to double check things more in the future.

                  Nice package. Requires a very small anchor shackle to fit through the chain link.
