Looks great but don't be surprised if it takes a LONG time to sell it, or you get offered a LOT less. The new generation anchors are all the rage and CQR types are going begging. At my local marine consignment store in the SF Bay Area, there are probably 5 or 6 CQRs that have been sitting there for a long time, but I haven't actually checked their asking prices (having just got a boat with a FastSet that works great).
I have no dog in this fight but figured you might appreciate the feedback.
Good luck,
Oldersalt

Thanks for your input. I know it isn't an easy sale but if I didn't list it, it would never sell and fortunately I don't need to sell it to buy fuel for the boat. CA may also be a different market, after all it is the 'left coast'.;>
I'm actually carrying a ROCNA now which isn't SS.
SS sure looks good on the bow though and someone may appreciate that.

Can you say bow bling! We have a few members with SS anchors which do look pretty sharp on the bow. Good luck on the sale.

THE best anchor is a relative question.
There are those with Danforth that believe they are the BEST. There are those with Fortress that believe that model is the best.
CGR anchors have been around, and still are, for quite some time.
Then you have those captains who carry 2 different anchors on the bow.
There are some who believe that it isn't so much the anchor as it is the rode, all chain, chain and line or all line, 8b plait of course.
Finally, some believe in a kellet and won't anchor without one.
Therefore we have choices.
As someone else said this could be considered bow bling.
I'd consider it one of THE best, so where would you like me to deliver it to?
