danforth anchor syorage

Unread post by mark »

My 2018 Searunner 190 ETHT is stored 1500 km from home. I have been told I need a bigger anchor by all the old timers. I don't have a bow roller so I am trying to remember the size the door under the step up to the bow. Have been told a Danforth anchor works best where we fish. Does anyone know what size of anchor that I could store in the bow storage area? Plan B is to install a bow roller.

You might want to look at Fish Fighter Products. I bought their nest for the Trolling motor and Anchor nest and their 26 lb anchor. Either one is lockable. easy to change to the fishing of that day. I also got their anchor pulling system, Love it all. At 71 they make it easy too pull up the anchor. Well made and high quality.

Hewescraft sent me the measurements 14 1/4" tall and 18 1/2" wide. Much bigger than I remember. I am getting a 14 lb Danforth style anchor so it will fit in without much trouble. I never anchor while fishing, just needed an anchor in case of a power loss. Where we fish has almost no sandy beaches, just fairly steep rock cliffs that could make a mess of our new SR. Thanks for your advice.
