Hello Brian

I've just found this on the 'net. It may not be suitable for you but I thought you 'anchory' types may like to take a look:

Looks like an interesting design, and they appear to have a good selection of testimonials. The "Baby Bubbles" look particularly cool!

They're not cheap though, and the occasional anchorer may be better served with a less expensive conventional design.

I'm surprised to see that their recommended length of chain is as little as 6ft. If this is really all that is required then there could be a bit of an overall weight saving.

John

PS Keith, here's an H for you

Hi Keith - you said that so quickly it almost went un-noticed!

What happened?!?

RIBase
The plot thickens. Just as I had worked out what I need, I find that upon measuring the boat hatch, the Bruce is unlikely to fit.
So went over to Jimmy Greens in Beer.("Where are you going , love?" "Over to Beer for an anchor" "Oh no you're not, you are going to The Anchor for a beer, aren't you?")

Top people at Jimmy Greens.
Got out just about every type and size of anchor they had, lots of measuring, humming and hahhing, and I finally bought TWO anchors. A 7.5kg Bruce, to see if I can wriggle-fit it, and a BIG folding grapnel (plus 10m chain, 30m rope, all professionally sorted for me while I waited.
Off down to the boat now to see what fits and what doesn't.

Therefore, what you actually need is a bigger hatch Mr Elliot
