I did - it was a Bruce anchor which was a bargain on Ebay - it arrived 2 years before my boat - problem is it's 20kgs NOT lbs - all I need now is the sunseeker to go with it.....

Is it one of these, is this what you've bought, is it?
Its got an inflatable bottom bit and a solid top bit, which is to my way of thinking a back to front rib.
If it isnt one of these I really think you should consider one anyway.

Ok Ok...I'll tell you!

I always knew roughly what I wanted a year ago.

I already have an Anchor Ian.

The first Item I bought was a bilge pump a year ago, as the last 12 months have gone by I've bought and aquired lots of other things to include hydraulic steering, battery cable etc. and most recently an Admiral multi-roller trailer. I'm in negotiations for a new 150 Opti and will probably order the Hull and tubes (size undecided) next week, based on whether the trailer fits on the drive

So nothing too weird

I would say a 10 meter drive Tim. Trouble is I've got to get two cars up there too.
