I've been off-line for the past 24 hours (yes, I started going through SailNet withdrawal), so here is the picture that Capta requested.
I'm not sure how much our Danforth weighs. Mr. Cthoops seems to think it's 16 pounds, but I would have thought it would be more difficult for me to lift at that weight. Then again, perhaps I have more upper body strength than I realized. We'll have to check it out when we're at the boat next weekend. Our boat is only 24 feet but it's 6,000 pounds.
It's good to hear that the Danforth might actually be a decent option, but after reading so many horrors stories about them, I'm not sure how well I'd sleep at night.
