Default 4100 SCR Anchor - Cut line

Hi Folks

We had to cut our anchor away last weekend and I'm not certain what the size is. Per charts I see 33lb and 44lb to replace but I've yet to go to the store and look at them. Can anyone with a 4100 SCR out there tell me what their boat came with. I think a 33lb stainless Danforth will do but if they came with a 44lb Id like to replace it with one. Suggestions welcome of course.

For the record I mostly anchor in sand but last weekend we anchored in a cove and after an hour of trying to free ourselves using cleats and moving every which way we could, we had no choice but to cut it away. :-(

TC

I'm showing the specs on a 4100 SCR as:

Weight (dry): 18,800 lbs
LOA: 43' 7"

Rocna: 44lb

Spade: 44 lbs

Manson Supreme: 35lb

Delta: 35Lb

I'm not a fan of the Danforth anchor. I prefer the new generation anchors, which I've had much better success with. I've used the Rocna Traditional, Manson Supreme and Rocna Vulcan extensively. All with excellent results. I've dragged several times on a Danforth design.

I'd be looking at either a Rocna Vulcan or a Spade. I don't think the rollbar of a Rocna Traditional or a Manson Supreme will work with your through-pulpit anchor pulpit. I personally think the Manson Boss is ugly. I'd go with a galvanized anchor, along with 40 feet of galvanized 5/16" G4 chain and 5/8" anchor line.

This is just one mans opinion.

I have a Fortress fx 23 for use primarily in sand bottom. About 15 ' chain and the rest rode (line). Does well....but maybe not best in clay bottoms.

Not great for reversing tides either. I had my chain foul a Fortress a number of years ago, causing my boat to drag.

They hold very, very well in a single direction. I use the fortress as a stern anchor.

Default Bought one

I went with a 20 lbs Galvanized Steel Danforth "Hi-Tensile" Fluke Anchor by Tie Down Engineering. Boat Length: Up to 50'. Works like a champ. Thanks for the info folks.
