I'm leaving on a four month inside passage
trip in a couple of months.
One item on my todo list that's nagging at me is an anchor
My current anchor
is a Danforth. It's stowed in an anchor locker
on the foredeck. Danforths collapse nice and flat so it fits in the locker (barely). I want to get a bigger anchor for all the obvious reasons. Probably a Rocna
10*. Unfortunately, that won't fit in the anchor locker
. I need to build some kind of mount for it.
The front area when the anchor needs to go is already pretty cramped. Between the bow lights, the toe rail, and the furling gear
, I'm not really sure what the best set it up might be.
Do any of you creative / experienced folks have suggestions for building a mount that will fit here?
I have a stainless steel
fabricator buddy awaiting orders.
* With 8800 pounds fully loaded and 28" of length, I'm on the light side of the range that a Rocna
10 is recommended for. I tend to think a 15 would be overkill.
