So Iím currently in Northeast Florida
heading south and to the Caribbean
in a few weeks. My current
ground tackle for the bow is a 10 kg lewmar delta
and a small bow roller. I plan on snubbing so Iím not too concerned about how roller size.
So my question is has anyone used this anchor
as their main on a similar vessel. I am loaded for cruising so figure 11,000 total displacement
. Out of caution I recently purchased a 15k 35 lb lewmar delta
and beefy bow roller. I was going to replace as the main. Sizing it up it seems much to oversized for my bow, plus I would have to cut out toe rail to install. I would still plan on keeping the 35 aboard as a storm anchor
but I guess Iíd like to know what others think. Keep the 10kg as main and 15kg as storm or 15kg as main. I will be aboard for the foreseeable future and plan on solely anchoring
making limited use of marinas/slips etc.
I understand that a new gen anchor would be ideal but that setup is out of the budget
for the time being.
