Loaded 2 of the 3 anchoirs aboard and also the anchor chain. Two shots, one 50m of 1/2 working rode ,and 60 m 1/2 backup below the workshop floor. The working anchor is the new ROCNA (anchor spelt backwards!) 40kg or 90lbs. They are getting very good reports around here, Designed in NZ and made in China. The hydraulic windless powers in and out at 12m per minute and will lift 1.5 tons.
