Michael, where did you buy that anchor? Would a 15 lb anchor be sufficient to hold my boat?

Lee, Whitworths sell the Manson Supremes.

To size the anchor, need to know a few things. How much does the Big Barra Boat weigh when fully loaded with gear, food and booze, passengers etc.? How much chain will your rode have? And what are the worst conditions (depth, seabed type, wind strength, swell size and tidal run) that you want to be confident that she will not drag anchor in?

Hmmmmm, leave it with me. I'll put it over the weighbridge the next time it's loaded - and I'll give some thought to the other factors.

Lee went on the Manson site and a 10lb would be okay if your only going to use it for light use like lunch use, etc. But go to the 15lb for a true over night anchor. https://www.mansonanchors.com/files/136 ... 554626.pdf This is the main link to the Manson Supreme https://www.mansonanchors.com/products/ ... n-supreme/

Thanks Tom It's an overnight anchor that I'm after. I just use the spot lock on the Minn Kota for a lunch stop.

The battery locker under the anchor locker will have an inspection hatch aft of the battery. The gap between the two lockers provides ventilation to separate sub sole cool air ducts that are fed forward of the battery locker and run to the diesel engine box and the electrical motor box.

GB your build is so well thought out it is amazing. You must spend your evenings with a cold one planning things out every night.
