Flip-Swivel Keeps Your Anchor Right Side Up During Retrieval

Flip-Swivel keeps your anchor from twisting and coming over the roller upside-down.

I have a swivel on my ­anchor to help prevent line twist, but more than half of the time, the claw anchor comes to the roller in the wrong position—with the spade-like flukes up instead of down. That forces me to reach over the bow and spin the anchor to the correct orientation before pulling it onto the roller. The uniquely designed Ultra Marine West Flip Swivel resolves this issue. It automatically rotates the anchor to the correct ­position as the ­articulating swivel travels up and over the roller. No leaning over the bow in rough seas. The Flip Swivel is available in seven sizes to fit a variety of chain and anchor sizes. Prices start at $329.
