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?

I doubt it'll fit in the anchor locker either, but I'll measure out the locker just so I know for future reference anyway.

Oh... and there isn't a bow roller yet... So any anchor I do use will have to be man handled back up to the deck. Right now it has a fluke anchor, which I haven't noted the poundage on. But it looks like it's probably the minimum required for a 30 footer, which wouldn't make me comfortable anchoring in anything more than calm conditions with it.
