Dyneema Rode for Drum Winch
- Free Shipping
If you have a boat with a drum winch or you are building a custom boat that will have a boat winch instead of a standard windlass, you have probably realized how rare it is to find a Dyneema anchor rode. Luckily, this is something that we create here at Dark Horse.
We begin with four hundred feet of blue Dyneema 5/16" rope, which is half the width but twice as strong as typical nylon rope. Because the Dyneema does not have elasticity, we then connect the Dyneema to seventy-five feet of 5/8" 8-plait nylon rope for shock absorbency. This 8-plait rope is then spliced to twenty feet of 5/16" stainless steel chain. You or the boat builder then connects the chain to the anchor via a swivel or shackle. This listing is for this exact combination and it can take up to 2-3 weeks to create this premium anchor rode. We are able to send the anchor rode directly to your boat builder so that it can be loaded onto your boat prior to shipping.
If you need a different combination or diameter, please contact us via email at info@darkhorsemarine and we would be happy to get you a custom quote!
