It is simple, I wish it was my idea, but Lvrwurst let me see his Arima before he sold his. The roller he had was wider than mine. Either way they both work Let me know if you need more photos. Today I went sturgeon fishing, didn't catch anything but Delta weed. We anchor 6 times and never went to the front of the boat. This anchoring system is easy and I do this outside the cabin.

Fishin:


   Thanks for the post and pics.  Certainly an interesting alternative to the anchoring issue.  That said, for some reason, I'm a little troubled by that interior cleat; could be a lot of strain on an anchor line in a nasty chop.  :shrug9:  Obviously,  that forward hatch makes that system possible, but I'm still thinking Arima could do well by giving the sliding hatch idea a serious look.

Dear Arima:  Please "square-off" the Hunter transom.  Make it like my old 77 Silverline.  Thank you.  Oh yeah...please hurry; I'm getting old.

Yachter I agree with what you said, about the strain. Yesterday the outgoing tide was moving fast along with the wind. I do not anchor in the ocean only in the delta. This is a nice alternative to climbing on top of the bow to drop the anchor or trying to do yoga and fit through the window.  :clap:

Here's the system some of us use on the Columbia as demonstrated by Jeanne (Mrs. Woody).

It works well and keeps the lines away from the prop and rear cleats.  (Danno found it)
