Lots of good going electric. If you get your anchor stuck in current/stone, you can even throttle up a bit, all from inside. Much harder to fight the current by hand. And since you are doing all the work; you can reward yourself a little. Just don't throttle up and forget. I did it once and my buddy held my ankles while I held my breath and dove for the prop with a fillet knife. There is no emoticon that does this justice. Least the water was mid 60s.
Getting hung up on the stern is something to avoided at all costs in strong currents. And it really does not matter the boat size. I once saw an ocean going 80 foot tug setting anchors for a new oil platforms derrick barge make that mistake. They were setting huge anchors off the stern and running out the rode and letting the buoy roll over the stern when all the rode was out. Something happened and the buoy end was not loose. They were going down current and when they came to the end the boat stopped current rolled over the stern and tug was gone in less than one minute.

The water doesn't have to be "Alaska Cold"...

The story doesn't give the detail that they tied the anchor line to the stern when they were trying to break it free. Twin outboards pulled her down fast!

I thought you were not too sold on handrails for this boat. I do agree they are a big help.
I am not sold on any of this! That is one sweet looking boat with beautiful lines that would be awesome with a center console and nothing else. Maybe a nice T top with zip up protection for foul weather.

(you do know I'm just giving you crap. After all I'm old and my wife is fat :lol: :lol: )
Well you are younger than me and having met your wife I know she is NOT fat.
Problem is I know you are right about the centre console dag gum it.

I still think the answer is the "Karate Kid" opening costume...

But then I'm not the one that will have to deal with your angry Russian.

In Russian they call it Без перевода, which is "hidden toilet".

And then there's this for anyone who can't stay in the boat!

All way below the price of a fugly cabin!

But if you're sure you need a cabin, here's a possible design suggestion... 8) 8)

You don't need a windlass to pull the anchor.

25 lb anchor, 30 feet of 3/8" chain, 250' of rode, no problem.

You just gotta invite a couple of stout friends to go fishing with you :lol:
