Description

Windlass Anchor Rode - 1/2" 8 Plait Nylon Rope spliced to 15 ft of Stainless Steel 1/4" Chain 

This rode uses premium medium lay 8-strand windlass rope and marine-grade 316 stainless windlass chain. 

  • Stainless chain offers an aesthetics benefit for those who prefer the continuous shine of stainless on the bow of their boat
  • Stainless chain avoids the issues concerning galvanizing and wear that can rust and stain your deck and rope locker
  • Stainless chain stows nicely, because unlike galvanized chain it does not 'cone' in the chain locker (simply because the links are smoother)

Eight plait anchor rodes have a few distinct advantages over three strand rodes:

  • Eight plait rodes have a looser, bi-directional woven lay, allowing it to drape over itself, reducing air voids found between the coiled, denser line found in three strand rodes. The more air in the locker, the less line capacity you're able to carry onboard.
  • Since the line has no bias clockwise or counter clockwise, the rope will not hockle or kink, allowing the windlass to manage the rope better

  • Eight plait rope is able to absorb higher shock loads than three strand rope

  • The combination of premium nylon rope and chain is suitable for all major windlass manufacturers

Please check your windlass manufacturers specifications to ensure a proper match.
 

If you have a Lewmar windlass, you can check the number on your chainwheel against our chart here: https://darkhorsemarine.com/lewmar-windlass-gypsy-guides/ 

 

If you have any questions about what size rode you need for your chainwheel, please ask prior to ordering! 
 
**All rodes must be soaked prior to use, otherwise snags and slippage can occur. Ensure that you have the proper size and then soak from 2 to 24 hours before loading into your windlass.**
 
Choose your chain type and rope length above. Don't see exactly what you need? Every rode that we sell is spliced in-house, which allows us to easily offer you

the opportunity to build your own custom rode. Check it out here at: https://darkhorsemarine.com/custom-anchor-rode/

    Better than the free delivery was the speed of delivery. Ordered on a Monday and had the box on Thursday.
