The Quest For The Perfect Anchor Roller—Part 2

In the last chapter, I specified the perfect offshore voyaging boat anchor roller and how existing rollers can be improved. But what happens if we need to scrap the piece of junk the builder saddled us with and start over?

Also, are there any benefits to having two rollers? And, if so, how should they be designed to work well together?
