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.

              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.
