I saw your post - but there was no picture, so I'm thinking a box full of sand ?

I think that the delta is great and it fits between my fuel tank and spare 10L fuel can in the bow locker - but wrapped in a cheap rubber car mat.

I am sure answer to this question would be of interest to any boating beginner including myself...
Many thanks for posting the info and these great pics!

Let's hope John moves this thread (when he gets free moment) into our new SIB section .

We do not have strong winds & currents like UK has, typically 10/18 knots, for my personal anchoring configuration am currently using a 2 meter lenght danforth 2.5 Kg anchor & 0.7 mm chain set up, with 20 meter rolled 0.7 mm nylon rope to the dispenser and fixed with removable stainles steel parts. Have workeg fine for me, my total sib, engine, anchor, full gas tank & extras only weights 160 Kg. Will anchor the boat with 4 adults as well. Usually using 5/10 meter rope lenght as we anchor near sandy beaches.

Happy Boating
