Anchor for Catalina 22

Does anyone know the standard danforth anchor for a Catalina 22. I'm shopping for one and want to make sure it will fit in the locker.

Thanks for the reply. For the record, I was referring to the standard anchor locker on the foredeck of a 1990 Cat 22. The answer which I picked up else where is an 8lb anchor.

So now that I have an anchor, I'm considering a windlass. Has anyone installed a windlass on a catalina 22. My 1990 has an anchor locker on the foredeck. I'm looking for ideas on what type of windlass makes the most sense for that configuration.

I see no real need for a windlass. My 22' Catalina has a 14# Delta with 30' of chain and 250' of nylon rode through a Catalina Direct bow roller. My chain length is more than most would use on this boat. If you need it for single-handing, I'd just use the normal 10' or so of chain and set up the rode to feed back to the cockpit. There you can raise the anchor using one of the winches. Once you are clear of land, either under power or sail, you can go forward and stow the rode and anchor.
