Default Flush mount stainless steel anchors

Does anyone know who may make a stainless steel anchor that would be integrated into the hull? I know fountain uses one on there larger boats. I would like to find one I can install on my boat.

You'll have to have it custom fabricated.
We've built a few ourselves.
They look nice but not the best if you want to really anchor.
I've heard they're not all that great on the Fountains either.

It's better to use a real anchor that protrudes from the bow.

I have heard that the ones on Fountains don't work all that well. In fact, i was at the factory a few months ago and the new 38 TE had a name brand hanging off the front. I believe they are going away from the integrated ones.

Default Found an anchor

I thought I would share this with everyone. I found an anchor that will work. I will order the winlass later.
This will be going on my 50 Hustler.
