Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Anchor swivel
I'm not a fan of swivels unless they are really bullet proof, preferably bought from a commercial trawler co-op or similar.
The solution I was taught is to use two anchor shackles( anchor-shackle-shackle-chain) between the anchor and chain. Has the same ability to deliver the anchor ( a Spade in our case) correctly to the roller , easily inspected ( and a whole lot cheaper ! )

Hi again. More often than not my rockna anchor arrives at the roller facing the wrong way. Swivel allows it to turn as it comes up and over. I just pause the windlass at the right moment and it flips.
