Yes, I love everything about it, too...except the price tag.
The rest I can't fault.

Yep...that right there is a dandy! Keeping it moored right where she lies would be good too. Probably a good thing that “she who holds the veto power” is close by....moving on now.

Knew eagle eyed Eric would notice the anchor in the first photo, so included a close up of the "mud scoops" welded to the horizontal bar.

Beautiful boat but looks out of proportion to me. Needs another 15 to 20 ft in length to look right.

variable beam catamaran: Not enough clearance underneath to prevent slamming in heavy weather. No real use of space in the amas (hulls) and as Art says, too many moving parts to last long. Cute, perhaps cool but not for long.

Murray,
Indeed I’ve thought of that before but w “V” shaped auxiliary flukes. But this guy knew the concave shape is better and went to the trouble to provide it. The stock on these types of anchors (all Danforths included) become submerged to some extent especially in soft bottoms. Couldn’t help but add to the drag that would (to some degree) add to holding power. On a reversal these aux flukes could go a long way toward keeping the stock flat and that could be a big plus.

The question of course is would just making the flukes bigger be better. In this case yes because the deeply submerged main fluke has a tremendous advantage by being well submerged. But if the penetration of the main flukes was limited by the auxillary flukes tacked on the stock they probably wouldn’t be an advantage. But the auxillary flukes may prevent (to some degree) more penetration of the main flukes and of course that would probably be somewhat of a overall loss.

Not many anchor modders out there so I’m always pleased to thrilled to encounter one. And to think of the pos and negs of it.

My modded Claw on my bow at the marina hasn’t resulted in any comments at all. And I was kinda dreading halving to explain too many times. I wonder how many realize it started life as a Claw. Before it worked well too. And of course now it may to probably won’t. I don’t think much of gambling but here I am doing it. Thanks for think’in of me Murray.

Edit;
Many of the home grown BC Canadian Northill anchors use a piece of channel for the stock so it will perform like it’s got “mud scoops” by the shape of the channel. And the channel is much stronger. HaHa but the mud scoops look more sophisticated.

I agree. It looks like the stern is missing. Maybe it went through the Bermuda triangle and came up short on the other side.

You devil!! You knew he would bite and so he did. One is to learn something about anchors once you put your quarter into the slot!! Good response with great detail. I always enjoy Eric. Thanks Murray- your timing is sweet!
