Tripping your anchor.

How do you get on running through your bow roller? I’m thinking the cable ties will just get smashed? I don’t have my anchor rigged to trip as I don’t ever fish over rough ground but it does make sense.

Yeah I don’t have mine rigged to trip either on my current boat. I do think about doing it, however just like my glasses, I keep forgetting to take the ties with me.

I have the same trip link set up on Apache as shown in the vid that Neil posted. No problem at all with running through the bow roller.

What’s the actual name of those is it just a “trip link”?

What windlass did you have? I know it doesn’t get to the windlass but out of curiosity?

No windlass on Apache. I use the Alderney method on her.

I have a Quick Prince on Jersey Girl running 12mm 3 strand and 6mm chain IIRC.

Your windlass also struggles doesn’t it. What is the problem with yours, is it the rope bunching up?

Same as the problem you mentioned about all the other windlasses you've had. It retrieves chain perfectly, but the rope doesn't fall away quick enough so it catches on the opposite side of the hawse hole and bunches back up into the gypsy.
