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.

          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.

                    Rode should have been coiled in reverse order in bucket to facillitate easier installation.
                    Nice reusable plastic bucket with lid used as shipping container.

                            I spend several weekends at anchor every month and feel secure using this rode package. I really like that it is spliced around the chain rather than having an eyesplice with another shackle.
