Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Anchor swivel [2 Attachments]



Maybe your photo proves the opposite. What kind of load did it take to deform? Think about it.

I believe the WASI anchor swivel may be the weak point in the current anchor system.  It may have been state of the art 10 years ago - things change.  I found the WASI swivel deformed, see photos, as Porter described.  Ours was attached to a 33kg Rockna.  It was replaced with a Mantus swivel due to the chain attachment method and its general construction, it appears to a brute.  Additionally, the customer support from the US distributor for WASI was horrible, multiple phone calls with no return calls, etc. - you may know the drill.
