Anchor mount

The anchor locker is small on the 26x. Also the anchor is hard to get to, especially if you need to set fast, such as if the engine quits in a tight area. I used a West Marine rail mounting bracket to mount the Fortress FX11, with a vinyl covered anchor chain attached to a conventional chain, and a Blue Water Marine anchor roller. If I am going on a trip, I sometimes put the smaller 8 lb anchor in the locker, as a backup.
