Has anyone installed a bow roller to lower/raise the anchor? Any useful tips on how to bolt it securely?

Thank you.

Here's a link to a previous discussion of bow rollers. Click on the link and then scroll down to the photos of the bow roller.

I installed a bow roller very similar to the one in the thread Steve linked to.
Only I own a C-25. Pretty straight forward (no pun intended) just be sure to review drilling and sealing holes in your deck.
I went "over board" drilling slightly larger holes, taping from below, filling the holes with epoxy then drilling the correct sized holes. I also put it on the starboard side as my anchor locker opens that way.
The C-25 has a flat spot next to the forestay and the roller had to be slightly angled to fit. I did it quite a few years ago and it works well and has never leaked.
