We have been using a Rocna, aboard the 64' Ketch on which we are crew, for the last two years and absolutely love it. I can't see how we'd get one to fit on our K32's wooden bowsprit either, but am so sold on the Rocna that I'm determined to figure something out. I'd miss the look of our wooden bowsprit quite a bit, but I'm considering switching to the W42 style tubular stainless bowsprit in order to get one to fit.

How far off center are the rollers on a standard W32 bowsprit? Might there be a way to set up a Double roller system that would store the anchor angled down, allowing it to self launch and give the rollbar enough clearance to sit under the platform while mostly clearing the sprit itself?

I'll try to post more details on our experiences with the anchor later on.
