We've been considering a redesign of our anchor locker
; first to seperate the chain/rode for the two anchors, secondly looking at a new hatch
, one that will be flush to the deck
rather than the current
hump which allows the anchors shaft to slide under the hatch
Has anyone had similiar thoughts? Other ideas?
I have a 42DS and it came with a Delta
Plow which did not hold well in the muddy Chesapeake Bay
for us. At the suggestion of a friend who worked at Westmarine I replaced with 44 Lewmar Claw
which has been doing a great job. It holds in wind
and resets beautifully. I use 200ft of chain with it. This winter I'm putting a v-shaped board in the anchor
compartment to let me put the backup in there, while letting the chain fall below it. I'm definitely going to do something to extend the bow-roller another foot. Bad design on Jeanneau's part, with the anchor
always striking the bow when raising.
