    The bow of the x is awfully crowed making the Anchor roller difficult to use with anything other than a very small anchor. What have you found works?
    I’m currently using a 20lb bruce that I keep on the kicker mount at the stern. I also have a 15lb danforth that I have mounted on the pulpit.


    I have a 26S. The best I’ve come up with so far is an anchor “locker” in the v berth, accessible through the forward hatch. We never use the v berth for anything but stowage, so I took out the cushions and put down rubber matting. Then I built a simple plywood box with two chambers, one for the anchor and the other for the rode.

    The main down side so far is that it puts the center of mass a little further forward than I would like. But I will soon be adding an electric start engine, and possibly moving the batter back to the lazarette, so that should help.


    We went with a section of plastic tubing mounted to the pulpit and our Rocna Anchor slides down into it with the head of the anchor sticking up. The plastic tubing is attached with two or three hose clamps. The plastic tubing is just standard plumbing tubing that you can get at most hardware stores.
