Last year I bought a used 2525 Kingfisher (I love it) that didn't have an anchor system. It originally had a 700 Lewmar but all that was removed before I got the boat. So, when I fished last summer I carried an anchor, rope, and bouy for emergencies; but, I have never anchored yet. Kingfishers have a flat aluminum front deck, so, there isn't an easy way to store the rope unless I feed it into to the rope hole by hand.
I have heard that some people have had problems with the lewmars, both malfunctions and the rope kinking up.
So, how about some advice. Is the Lewmar the way to go? Or should I look into an above deck capstan or an anchor reel? And what rope should I get? Lewmar sells their own rope, but it is pretty spendy.
