Re: Anchor weight for 1650 Ib boat...

I have a 7 pound-ish danforth now that I plan to keep as a backup/stern anchor. It fits OK in one of my rear lockers but as noted above, they can (and I think so) be a pain to store, move to the bow etc.

My sister made me a beautiful bow pulpit/anchor roller out of solid teak, installation the current project. I tend to put the pull of the anchor on the bow eye vs the platform so the wood platform will only be used to store and launch the anchor.

I originally designed the pulpit to hold a bruce/claw style so I that's why I was most interested in them. I think I am kinda committed at this point. ; )

I also trailer my boat to areas with sandy bottoms, rock, grass etc so I want a good general purpose anchor. Potomac and lower Chesapeake is just primary area.
