Primary: 44# Bruce
Secondary: A100 Spade (20#)
In the bag below deck: FX-23 Fortress

Aaron, If you don't mind I'd like to see a picture of the Ronca under the tubular bowsprit when you get that far. I really like my Spade but kinda kick myself for not getting the steel version. And with the exchange rate the price for a Spade has gone beyond were I'll probably be willing to go.

The Bruce and Spade fit real well together under the tubular bowsprit. They pull up nice and snug and I can launch or retrieve either with no interference from the other. The Ronca is similar to the Spade but has the addition of the roll bar, I'm just not sure how well that will pull up underneath the bowsprit. With a good roller off the front of the bow (doesn't apply to us) I think it would be a great anchor to try.

BTW, I looked at the Ronca specs. If that is going to be your primary would you maybe want to go up to the Ronca 20?
