Don't know if your boat is going to have a swim step but you might consider carrying the Danforth on a swimstep or transom mount to use under conditions when it would be the best choice. A Danforth/Fortress is a lot easier to stow or carry than the rather clumsy one-piece anchors like claws, plows, spades, rollbars, etc.

The photo below is not ideal for illustrating this but it shows our Fortress stern anchor, which with its rode is sized to be the main anchor for the boat, in its mount on the swimstep and transom. This installation was in place when we bought the boat. All we did was change the smaller but very heavy no-name (and bent) Danforth knock-off for the Fortress.
