I installed the mid-sized swivel on a 52 Kg Vulcan anchor for my Selene 53 trawler which has a Maxwell 2500 windlass and 400 feet of 3/8 inch chain. Swivel construction was impressive. Installation went well and was simple. First night out about 2 weeks ago we were anchored out on the Yeocomico River off the Chesapeake Bay. A major storm with steady wind of 40 and gusts to 60 blew through within an hour and I let out an additional 50 feet of rode to give me a 7 to one ratio for scope. The 100,000 trawler did some dancing in the anchorage for around an hour and drew the chain tight many times. The anchor and swivel performed flawlessly. That was a great test for my new ground tackle set up and I can sleep peacefully in the future.
