I have a 1996 Dauntless that has the optional bow roller on it. I can't figure out what type of anchor the bow roller is supposed to hold. To anyone who has a 1996 - 2000 DAUNTLESS dual console and is using the bow roller with an anchor stored in the roller, [what anchor are you using]? >Thanks

I deleted the duplicate thread you began on this same topic.

What is the length of your DAUNTLESS? That might affect the dimension of the anchor roller.

Have you tried contacting Boston Whaler customer service to ask them about a suitable anchor for the 1996 DAUNTLESS?

I once owned a 1996 20' Dauntless with the optional roller and my impression is that it was not designed to "hold" any anchor. Rather I think the roller is used to facilitate the rolling in of anchor rope.

Sorry for the double posting- the first posting subject line didn't update from an old posting I did two years ago.

Contacting whaler was the right call. Here is the answer in case someone comes across this thread:

The anchor roller used on the 1996 20 Dauntless was produced by a company called Windline. Their vendor part# for this was R-353. From what I understand, they no longer produce this part, though.

Boston Whaler did not offer anchors from the factory at this time, however, I believe a 9lbs Danforth should fit without issue (depending on your needs).

Whaler would have included a Southco adjustable latch with the optional anchor roller. Below is a link to the Southco website showing the original...

So net of it -- a 9 lb danforth should fit and stow on the roller (need to figure out how), and it gets secured with this southco adjustable latch.
