So, technically the picture from Speedysprocket is of a Bruce style anchor. However a Bruce, Plow, CQR, Rocna Vulcan, Spade, or Manson Boss will all fit similarly on a through-pulpit setup.

If asking for anchor opinions I use a Rocna Vulcan on a through-pulpit and love it.

I have a 35lb. West Marine modified scoop anchor, like this one:

https://www.westmarine.com/buy/west-...chor--15985732

I love it. Holds fast in almost every bottom condition I'm likely to encounter, from lake mud, to gravel, to rocks, to the bottom of Puget Sound. It fits on my bow roller just fine and is not visually obtrusive. I've had it for two years now and it has never once slipped, even when I have two other boats rafted up on me.

I bought it after my old anchor (a 25lb. Danforth style) failed to prevent me from being blown out of a cove in the middle of the night and almost crashing into a bridge.

Do you all have anchor chains? My boat has a windlass that only works with line, and it's like 2 feet from the anchor when it's housed, so no room for chain. I think that's why I have a hard time getting it to set.

Yes....I have about 25ft of chain....I am looking for something that holds better and easier to clean than my current danforth. My windlass is a capsian, gypsy combo. I use the capsain for the line and push over to gypsy when get to chain.....does not work very well....
