Do photo help?

I braved the rain and took a few photos...

Sweet as B.
I'd say you will have zero problem fitting either the 45 or 60 Supreme. Drop straight on and off you go.

That is one butt ugly plow you have there so you will notice a bloody big difference. Don't be backing at any speed when you deploy the Supreme, it'll stop so much faster than that shitter you have now.

Actually those shitters have quite short shanks so it may just pay to check shank length as you are close to the cleat.

And it the cleat holding the winch on or the other way around? Just noticed the lashing

Tanks for your comments it would be fantastic to try the anchor for size, but I am in the Med and I don't think a retailer would be happy about shipping a 55kg anchor back or hanging on to it in the hope some one else is going to need this size soon. I will have a play with my cardboard anchor when the rain stops and see if I can get a definitive answer, if not I guess I can always ask about the possibility of swapping for a 40 if it does not work.
If anyone has photos of a Rocna or Manson supreme on their bow roller it would help in judging at what attitude the anchor sits (Thanks Rick for the one you posted). Even better would be a series of photos as it launches of the bow roller as suggested by Latina.

Have just knocked up an accurate 50kg Supreme out of corrugated plastic sheets x 2 plus some Supaglue. Just check out the websites and give it a shot - just a few hours getting stiff knees on the saloon floor and you will be in business.

Roller makes big difference!

The Rocna looked terrible, rode terrible. I was ready to return it but a new roller made all the difference. I tried to load a pic from photobucket but couldn't....
