Anchor platform/Bow roller dimensions for a Cal 52 CPMY

Hi folks,

I just had my offer accepted for a 1991 52' CPMY Californian/Carver. It currently has a beautiful SS Bruce anchor, but I would like to switch to a new gen anchor. My problem is that the boat is currently about 300 miles from me. Are there any owners of Californian 52s out there? If so, I would love to have a rough measurement of the anchor/bow roller opening and overall length, and the distance to the windlass. I can use these measurements to see what anchors I might buy for my prospective boat. I am leaning towards an Ultra or Rocna, but don't want to start an anchor debate, lol.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Cheers, Bill

I have a 1990 45. No current, appropriately sized anchor seems to fit correctly. I went with a 65# Mantus that doesn't fit well but it sure does anchor!
