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.

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.

    Windlass on 208 Edgewater. Works great but the line in spliced area is fraying after 100 hours motor use at windlass use of about 75% of that time.

      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.
