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
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.
