The anchor is a #7 and weighs 36KG

The old anchor is a bruce clone and weighs 30KG

The anchor is being attached to a all chain rode of 550' and a new Lofrans Tigress windlass.

Now I have all the parts and pieces at the house and am waiting for another couple weeks to pass for the weather to warm up a bit, then I can go dewinterize the boat and get it installed.

Nope, and no martini holding owners with captains hats either.

And we don't wear white pants and tie our sweaters around our waists.

We Alaskans tend to set fashin standards, such as hip boots, carhart tees and coats, baseball caps. That is our finest dinner wear!

Warm weather is on the way. Saw seagulls riding thermals for the first time this spring yesterday, and heard the first sparrow today

Alaskan clothing story...

Two seasons ago I see this guy in dirty Careharts stepping off of his boat a few slips away from mine. He looks somehow familiar.

So I say hi, introduce myself and say he looks familiar. He says I look familiar as well. I ask him if he works in the oil field since se see allot of people up there and see them elsewhere and kinda recognize them.

He says no, he's an orthodontist. Then a light turns on in his head as he looks at the name on my boat "lisa's way". He asks if my wife is Lisa, and he smiles and says he did my wifes braces several years before.

So (and back to the clothes thing here) I look at him in dirty Careharts and I laugh, telling him how he doesn't look much like an orthodontist. Then I still laughing tell him how he ruined my impression of orthodontists forever. He asks why...

So I tell him how he's here in dirty Careharts and I thought orthodontists were mostly pussy types who do things like build ships in a bottle.

He responds "yea, I guess I'm different. I just got done rebuilding my marine transmission on my saloon table, I guess I'm an Alaskan orthodontist"

Your new anchor looks great. All you have to do now to finish the buyer assembly part of the purchase is get a big torch heat the anchor up till its cherry red and change the plow to a shovel(concave) shape.

Kevin,

I am sure the halibut will be impressed with your new anchor. It looks good enough to install a big split ring and hook and troll really deep for something really big.

Kevin,
I love your orthodontist account. My doctor in Craig (one of several (at least)) had the exact same OB as I did. We swapped oil changing stories.

I had the same "dirty Careharts story" as you but w one of the local ministers. One could go on and on as everybody fishes. Alaska is one very big hunting and fishing resort. So everybody male and female is down at the fish cleaning station.

Kevin--- All you need to do to satisfy the yacht crowd is get six or ten feet of stainless chain and when you're not going to actually use your anchor, unshackle the galvanized chain, shackle the stainless length on the end of it, and then attach the stainless chain to the Excel. Then you'll meet all the requirements of the harbor-hop folks.

As I'm sure your research showed you, the Tigres is a great windlass. We replaced the no-name windlass that came with our boat with a Tigres many years ago and it's given flawless service from day one. I may disagree with someone's choice of anchor, but choosing a Tigres is an excellent decision no matter what one hangs on the end of the chain.

I'll second that about the Tigres, it's a good unit.

Good to see everyone playing nicely again.

We get a LOT of rain here in Louisiana, I made this cover to keep it out of the chain locker.

Steve--- I like the cover you made for the hole in the base of your Tigres. We're not that clever. After we installed our Tigres my wife made this cover for it to protect the windlass but also to keep rainwater and spray out of the anchor locker. It's two layers of fabric. There is Sunbrella on the outside and waterproof vinyl of some sort on the inside.
