Rocna 15 installed on R-25 SC

Postby YukonRon on Mon Feb 12, 2018 7:41 pm

I just finished installing our new anchor and rode on our 2013 R-25 SC. We bought a Rocna 15 (33lbs) anchor; and a Titan pre-spliced rode kit of 50 ft of 5/16 G43 chain and 250 ft of 5/8" 8-Plait nylon rope. The Titan rep told me that the rope is made for Titan by the same company that makes Maxwell ropes.
The anchor fits perfectly on the bow roller with no modifications, and the windlass seems to handle the rope and splice without problem. The rode fits quite nicely in the locker, but does need a little help to push the pile aside once in a while as it fills up. I've always had to do this with the stock rode anyways. In fact, it looks like it could even fit another 50 feet if you really wanted to, but would be pretty full and would need more intervention as it comes in.
Can't wait to try out on the water!
I'll attach one pic here. There are more on our gallery at:

We have had our Rocna 15 on our R27 now for a couple seasons. Love it! Sets really quick! Always sleep soundly.

Good looking setup;

That big snow anchor would have been useful on the Yukon Quest I got to see in '86.

I've had the Rocna 15 on our R25SC for a few years now, it's a great anchor. I did change out the bail for a larger one as the anchor rubbed against it, looks like yours is pretty tight also. You could give it a bit of a squeeze in a vise also.

Thanks for the heads up; I'll have another look at that. I thought that snug would be good to keep the anchor from moving around, but didn't consider the wear factor.
Maybe I can remove the bail and slip some hose or heat shrink on, then probably have to give it a little squeeze till it fits snug again?
I'll check it out and see what works.
