Ron---Could you please send me the picture group of the anchor well/bow roller arrangement you have.  I was always hesitant about mounting an anchor up front because of the swing when raising.  From what I have been reading though, this is really a non issue.  Any  other valuable insights to this would be appreciated.  As always, thanks for your valuable input.  Jim Moore

Ron and others
I hope you don't mind me requesting more information about anchoring. I have my boat located in the Midwest in Illinois and the lake bottom is primarily all mud. All of my years here and others sailors experiences in this area have been the use of the Danforth style anchors. These anchors are time tested and proven to work well in this area. Seems no one wants to buck tradition, so to speak. Purchasing a Bruce or Delta style anchor would be kind of out of the question since I have acquired quite an array of fluke style Danforth anchors in various weights over the years. The Danforth I presently use is the 35H weighing in at 35 lbs. The question is this. The CR-1 anchor roller advertisement in the Defender catalog states it will handle a fluke style up to 28 lbs. I would like to use this style bow roller because of it's narrow design obviously. Due to the extra weight placed on the roller, do you think it will be a factor in it's application? Or, do you think there is room for the roller model number CRM-1 item number 000968 in Defender catalog? All is not lost though, since I do own a 20H anchor from Danforth also. This would satisfy the weight limit for the CR-1, but for peace of mind at night I would like to use the heavier of the two. Thanks again everyone for any help   Jim Moore   1jhmoore@charter.net

Jim : Answered you separately. 
If you're happy with your Danforths - don't change.  OUT!

  Bill and Jerry,

       I have elected this upgrade as my must- do for this Spring. Can you tell me what you used to cut the existing bow roller? Did you cut it while bolted down in place / headstay still connected?

  Thanks

   Randy

Randy : If you will read the article I wrote in the May 1995 Mainsheet it will tell you how I cut it and how I did the job. There's even a picture.
The boat part was cut off in place and the contour part was cut off in a vice at home.  No the head stay was not removed.  The info is there, but YOU must read it.   :cry`
