Anchor-Avon 5.6 Adventurer

I just bought a 2001 Avon Adventurer, and am looking to chuck the grapnel anchor that came with it and replace it with either a claw/ bruce/delta type (we are in sand/mud/gravel around here a fair amount).

I've done a search, but if anyone has a similar bow locker and has successfully stored one in there, let me know. I'm thinking 5m of chain and ~100 meters of rode, and probably a the 9 pound (err, what is that, 4.5 kg) Delta.

I can answer this for anyone else interested for future reference.

A 9 pound delta with 18 feet of 1/4 and 5/16 inch chain and 300 feet of 1/2 inch rode works fine in this anchor locker, but anything more than that (especially in terms of anchor dimensions) may be a bit much.
