2400 Anchors

Postby On Holiday » Thu Jul 21, 2016 6:13 am

My anchor and chain decided it would rather stay at the bottom of the lake than come back to the surface. I had a Danforth anchor and it fit perfectly in the locker and was a great anchor for where I boat however I have no idea what the size of the anchor was. Any 2400 owners out there with a Danforth anchor that can point me in the right direction or take some measurements for me? I can easily measure the stock length however the length of the shank/ height of the anchor is the dimension that I am most concerned with.

For my 2400, I measured the "stock" and "shank.
The stock is the bar that rests in the grooves under the forward boarding ladder(anchor locker). Measure that to determine the length of the "stock" that will fit.
The "shank" is the long piece (the anchor rode connects to it) . That part will go in the anchor locker first when you store the anchor. Make sure that is not too long to permit the "stock " to sit in its grooves.
The link below will show the anchor and the parts names.
With those dimensions you can get one that will fit. That will give you the biggest anchor that the 2400 was designed for.

Do you still your 2400? I understand the measuring however the shank length is the hardest one to measure as the anchor has a flat part that is above/below the stock that is not included in the measurement. The Fortress brand is not being considered because of costs however a fluke style is much less expensive. I will place a dowel to represent the stock and take additional measurements to confirm shank length and the part that would be above the stock when in the anchor locker.

Thanks a bunch. In the mean time I used my old anchor from my 18' boat. Thankfully I had a lot of chain. The boat held nice in the windy conditions. As for the pontoon boat upwind from me, I had to keep an eye on them as they were dragging and had to keep repositioning.

The stock is 18" on ours, shank is 20" from pivot to end where rode attaches if that helps! Good fit in the 2400 anchor locker.
