Hi all,

So finally I replaced the 16kg Delta with a new Rocna Vulcan 20kg.
To have it stable while navigating I worked on the original idea of Peter, with a friend of mine we worked on a piece of Delrin and I didn't change the original bow roller (mine is 5mm); I just made an hole to put the original pin and block the anchor.

Here is a picture:


Thanks to Peter and the others.

Thanks Raymondo, 

I too replaced the Delta with 20kg Rocna Vulcan.  The bow roller support on my 2007 built 400 is 5mm thick, but clearly has different dimensions. When the anchor is raised, the original front pin (previously used to hold Delta in position, is too low to go over the anchor shank.

I will move that pin to go through the shank end eye as you have done. Then it is another small problem to solve to stop the anchor swinging.

It was very helpful to see your photographs for ideas to find a solution..

Cheers
DJ
