Is it just me or do most of these bow rollers look kinda small. I would be prone to bending them. Even a small danforth type can set tremendously well in good mud, and can be really tuff to pop out. I've got a 125 lb Danforth knockoff for a storm anchor and use a 80 for regular stuff. The big one doesnt fit to well in the bow pulpit/roller but is deployed from the deck anyway. The 80 fits very good. Either require a substantial setup, and a strong cleat.

My boat was offered with a Danforth on the bow. I elected a claw, and doubt the builder used a different anchor mount. Probably, a "universal" mount. Works fine.
