    Hi All,

    The original set of the pulley and nut for the anchor rope of my Bighorn Drifter pontoon came loose and shook off during transport last weekend on the Yak. The part originally screwed onto the bottom of the rear metal cargo plate (fit through a hole and secured by the nut on the other side) , where it guides the anchor down into the water.

    Any of you have any ideas where to get a screw type anchor pulley? I haven't found the right type of mini pulleys on the Home Depot or websites. And I've emailed and called North Fork Outdoors multiple times without a reply.

    I'm hoping to anchor up and bobber watch on a local lake this weekend. If I don't get a replacement part by then, I'll just stick to stripping and trolling leeches and buggers if I have to.

    I don't know how the Scadden anchor system works exactly but we have some extra pulleys we could get to you by this weekend if you think it looks like what is in the picture below.

    You could try West Marine. Check under sailboat blocks.

    +1 on Jeff's suggestion about hitting a marine supply store. I replaced the rear pulley on the cargo deck of both my frames (Scadden and Skookum) with a Ronstan sailing block. It's a stainless frame with a ball-bearing delrin pulley that spins free and easy. The large-diameter pulley made pulling anchor MUCH less effort than with the original pulley (that came with the Scadden). A screw shackle allows it to be easily removed and installed on a different frame. But they don't come cheap so bring plenty of money. My Ronstan 51100 ran nearly $40: http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wc...toreNum=10102&subdeptNum=10172&classNum=10178

    Thanks yall, I got it fixed using a sailing block roller. Works great, actually rolls much easier and smoother than the original scadden pulley.

    I wonder if this would work on a Scadden Escape?

    ...that or another option is getting a boat from a site sponsor, say an Air/Outcast or Catchercraft, a Washington based company using quality products that won't need to be replaced or who answers the phone and returns calls and e-mails. :thumb:

    Hey Dehlan - I'm having the same issue, trying to mount something like you're talking about on my Scadden, not sure how to go about it. Tried to follow the attachments but the link seems to have gone bad. Could you repost or pm me directly? Thanks, Tim

    What exactly are you having problems with? Thread through the foot peg pully, come out the back and thread throught the pully that comes with the boat and should be attached to the underside of the deck. Is Outcast or Catchercraft easier than that?
