Finally figured out how to navigate Sea Knots. Months ago I set up a profile and you commented. I have had a few articles published, was one of several who served as editor and reviewer for an education book, as well as edit articles and letters for colleagues.

Thanks, Jerry. Sea Fox is a Saga 43. She's a Robert Perry design built for speed with only a 12' beam so she sails very well. Our 7' draft is a problem in some places but we don't mind. We're her third owners - bought her in 2004 and moved aboard 2 years ago.

We've been crusing the east coast - got to Maine this year - and got as far south in the Bahamas as Warderick Wells. Will be doing more Bahamas exploring in the coming winter.

"We have a 55lb Rocna on our 43 and it fits just fine, sets quickly 99% of the time and holds like a rock. I use a double line bridle made up of 5/8" 3 strand and a chain gripper plate. On those times where it doesn't set immediately I just…"
"We upgraded from a Bruce 40lb anchor to a Manson 60 lb anchor on our B-40 as well as went all chain instead of rope to chain rode. The anchor fit perfectly on the roller. One suggestion is to put an inline swivel on the anchor and have a boat hook…"
