Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

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...

Re: Anchor weight for 1650 Ib boat...
