Mantus M1 65lbs for sale in Seattle

Very lightly used, 2 years old, Mantus M1 65lbs. Excellent anchor, but shank is too long for my bow-roller/windlass setup, so I am swapping it out for a smaller anchor. $450.
PM me if interested. (I am not going to ship it, so we would have to arrange to convey it in the Seattle area.)

Question: is there a reason why you do not extend the track your Mantus is on? Just curious as few people opt for a smaller anchor....

Making the roller long enough to accommodate the Mantus would make me too long for most 40' slips (I measure 4'11" LOA as is), and going up to a larger slip represents quite a jump in moorage costs. And it is not really the size of the Mantus per se, but its relatively long shank. I also looked into some kind of U-bolt or additional roller over the aft of the bow roller to hold the chain down, but it just didn't seem worth it. It is much easier just to get a properly sized and shaped anchor for my setup. Indeed, just about any other 65lb anchor would work--the Mantus is an outlyer. But I am considering 55 and 60 lb options as well, all of which are more than adequate for my boat.
