Rope slippage

If the rope on your rope/chain anchor rode has started to slip in the gypsy of your anchor windlass.

A way to modify the windlass to stop the slippage

Rope slippage is a common problem with many models of rope/chain windlasses. Matching the rode to the exact make and model of the windlass can become a fine art. Not all rodes are created equal.

A single rope supplier may manufacture the same rode in different grades. And the 1/2" 3-strand nylon of one manufacturer is not exactly the same as the 1/2" 3-strand nylon produced by a competitor rope manufacturer . On top of that, some gypsies handle some rodes better than others.

The New England Ropes Company make a Standard grade 3-strand nylon which is a blend of nylon.

They also make a Premium 3-strand nylon rode, which is a coated Caprolan® product.

New England Ropes Standard

The plain white New England Ropes Standard, is not suitable for any type of windlass gypsy as it is too soft. If this is the rode you have, the problems you are experiencing can be expected.

New England Ropes Premium

The second type, New England Ropes Premium, is excellent cordage and is identified by a red tracer woven through the rope strands. While it works well in some types of windlasses, we have found, just as you have, that it doesn't work as well in others. The reasons are various, including this: the abrasion-resistant coating on the Caprolan® can become slippery with age, especially when used in fresh water.

All nylon products tend to shrink with age and become harder. Anchor rodes also tend to stretch with use and thus are reduced in diameter. The combination of a rode that is reduced in diameter with use, harder and less pliable with age, and slippery, adds up to a predictable rode slipping problem. Generally, this slipping starts after a few months of use and becomes worse over time.
