Re: Not your typical anchor question

Cthoops I think if you went up a size or 2 with a Danforth you would be very happy and it won't cost as much as most of the other anchors. I have a Danforth on my E-32 that's meant for a boat in the 45' range with chain, and have anchored off the coast overnights with no worries. I also use the mounts of the rail as you have for my main anchor with no problem because of the size.

Re: Not your typical anchor question

My Danforth is hanging on a bracket that only requires 1 attachment point as opposed to the photo that OP posted.

Re: Not your typical anchor question

We had a similar set-up to the OP's on one of our previous boats. I kept the Danforth on the bow rail mount as a lunch hook and stowed a 33lbs Lewmar claw in the cockpit lazarette. The chain and rode were in the below-deck chain locker at the bow, with the only access from the deck being a chain pipe.

We used the Danforth for picnics, swimming etc., but I lugged the heavy claw up to the bow whenever we anchored for the night. That boat didn't have a bow/anchor roller and no easy way to install one because of the stem-head fitting and toe rails. It worked the way we used it, but it wasn't ideal and I cursed that big anchor every time I had to and from the cockpit.

Excellent anchor storage and a proper roller were mandatory requirements for the next boat.

Re: Not your typical anchor question

Been there, done that until I figured out it was a lot easier to toss the heavy anchor overboard and just walk the end of the rode up to the bow.
