I'm looking to upgrade the anchor arrangement on our 400. I'm concerned that the stainless steel channel won't really be strong enough in a big blow and I'd like it to be a little bit longer so that there is much less risk of the anchor fouling the hull when it is raised. At present we deploy the bow protector (a "flat" bow fender) to avoid this but this may not always be possible.
 
In addition, is anyone aware of a modification that would enable a second bow roller to be fitted - for a mooring line - alongside the anchor roller?
 
Incidentally, there is an interesting modification described at http://myhanse.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=1360 but this doesn't have a second roller for a mooring line.
 
As ever, grateful for all responses.

RICHARD not sure you should make channel longer as its length is the problem. I modified my 370 with a second channel and roller running side by side welded together. I fixed it through the deck in the same way as the original one. It worked really well and looked smart however i have sold that yacht so can not send you pictures. I have just taken delivery of a new 430e and in the process of making new bow roller assembly. I will post pictures of it when complete best of luck David

Richard ; My approach to anchoring is to use a rope bridle/s.s. hook led through the space between the channel and the stem fitting. As long as you use a pvc sleeve around the bridle and fasten it to the cleat all load is taken of the projecting channel.
 
With regard to protecting the bow from the anchor I am currently having a 3mm ss profiled plate made up by a local fabricator. Once I have this fittedand assess it I can let you know the details of the fabricator.

Thanks Dave and Colin.
 
I look forward to your further information/photo in due course.
 
I use a nylon "snubber" with the anchor chain. I used to lead it out through both fairleads but found that the chain hook would fall away from the chain. (Poor technique I know). So lately I've been using the channel/bow roller with better results.
 
I'll give your approach a try Colin.
 
Best wishes
