This chain roller bracket came with the boat and was for the original windless which the original owner installed. It was a quality build and we tried every way possible to use it but we just do not need it. It does take up some good anchor locker space and is a knuckle cracker when cleaning the chain etc.
Now with the new angle grinder it will come off. We tried to get the bronze access port open to remove the nuts but we could not budge the cover. We did at one point have the access port open when we removed the bow pulpit and installed new anchor rollers. It will not budge now se we moved on to cutting off the bracket. We tried with the Dremmel tool but we were braking too many blades and it was taking forever on one screw. The angel grinder is a nice tool for cutting chain etc. on the boat.
