I think that you'll find the Delta overkill and a PITA to haul without a windlass. If you figure the chain and the Delta is going to be at least 70 lbs... so how fit are you and how good is your back??

I just found a really good deal a used Delta 44lb anchor, but the Lewmar website is saying that this is designed for 50-60ft and I'd be using it for a 30 C&C.

I haven't measured the anchor locker but I suspect it's not going to fit in there, so it would have to be stowed below and brought up on deck when needed.

I'm thinking it would give me total peace of mind sleeping through the night on that big of a hook. But is a 44lb plow going to be difficult to break loose and raise without a winch?
