Having trouble finding room to mount a bow anchor roller on my Macgregor 25. The tang for the fore stay is in the way and there doesn't seem to be enough room inside for a backing plate even if I cut a slot in the anchor roller to fit around the tang. Do I even need an anchor roller on a Mac 25 with a Danforth style anchor?

It depends on your situation. I got by without an anchor roller on my Mac 26S for several years, although I would have preferred having one. Last time out I hurt my back pulling up the anchor, though, so now it's a priority for me.

I had a 26s and made a oak bow sprint out front. It was about 18 to 24 in long, then mounted a anchor roller on it. It worked good for me.

Probably do not need an anchor roller since your anchor is relatively light. Just stow it in a plastic crate that is lashed down to the deck.
