Does anyone know the correct size of anchor, for the anchor hold, in the x30. It seems to be a difficult question..

I have a small box anchor for a 35 and it holds great and is easy to store.

I have an fluke anchor in my x25 (ordered stock). Not sure about the size though, I can check for you next time on the boat. It fits nicely in the front storage and is quite easy to use.

Hey Scott - I understand your dilemma since I tried to fit a D&L Model 13E (http://www.dutton-lainson.com/products.php?cat=27) in my X-30 today and it didn't work. The width was perfect for the holding gaps molded into the fiberglass but the length of the anchor prevented it from easily slipping down into the anchor hold area. Me and my local dealer are going to do some research and see what we can find. I'm with you, I want "what belongs there" to finish off a clean look.

I'm not sure what size to go with but the curve on this anchor might allow it to set perfectly in the locker.

That one may work.. I was really hoping someone had already gotten one, that would work.. Or from the factory, maybe?

Hey Scott, went to check on my x30 yesterday and to see if my anchor would fit. The dealer is doing some modifications to it (slight bend to the arm where the rope attaches) so that the arm will slide down into the hold. Its a rubber coated anchor that fits other than that. I pick the boat up tomorrow and will try to get some pics and the anchor make.:D

Yeah, I was out but also didn't see it. Moreover, I really don't know much about the 2012s. I'd like to work on one that's for sure.

Dealer sounds great, but why have a anchor hold and anchor purchase option, if there isnt an anchor that fits, perfectly??:confused:

Just got back from the dealer and giving them their $$$$$.$$ Took a photo of my anchor well and a photo of my anchor. I did see one that comes from the factory and it is weeeeeeeek. 7 lb galvinized, wasnt impressed. The anchor that I have is Rubberized and 14 lbs, doesnt seem like much but it has worked for my Maristar, X2, and X14V. I have a Greenfield Slip ring Anchor. I'm not mutch for attaching links so i copied and pasted it below. I have a rubberized chain with quick connects as well. The arm of the anchor with the bend slides underneath the built in cooler and locks into place perfectly. The way they had the factory anchor mounted was the arm was up in the point of the bow. Looked like a rattle trap to me:D

Very nice! Thanks for sharing. I asked my dealer if they had the capability to bend one for me. Can you confirm that the anchor pictured is the 5lb?

5lb anchor on a 4500lb boat? Really?

Well, by bending the anchor I believe you have effectively made it a one sided anchor.

My 10 lb box anchor holds my 4200 lb boat and will even hold 2 more boats tied to the back of mine.

Wow, thats pretty good. I always went by the 1lb/ft lenght tso I have a 25lb rubber coated anchor for my 30. It actually sits in there pefect and has never moved or bounced around. But a 5 or 10lber would be nice, I just never imagined it being enought weight but I guess with a better design it doesn't have to weigh as much?

Its in the design and method in which it holds.

Alright guys, I believe we're overthinking the heck out of this. As JTNG pointed out, the anchor will fit in the anchor hold in an upside-down position with the long end pointing towards the nose of the boat.

I got a D-L 13E (http://www.dutton-lainson.com/proddetail.php?prod=23613) today and it fits like the boat was made for it. I haven't driven the boat with it installed yet but with all of the carpeting in the anchor locker I doubt there will be much rattling. In case anyone wants measurements, see attached.
