How about this?

Sure it is UGLY, but it is after all a 25 year old boat where the parts are worth 4 or 5 times the value of the whole thing.

AND, I don't have to fight a heavy mud laden anchor into the boat from having been anchored all day in a breeze where the flukes dig in so far you have to have two guys help pull it out of the mud.

Does not intrude into the cabin, I have 70 ft of 1/4" chain in the bow in front of the mirror wall that has been converted into an chain pocket complete with drain overboard. Let me tell you that doing fiberglass work up in the v-berth to create the watertite pocket for the chain was NASTY. Deck mounted Windless will pull with 700 lbs force, so I put reinforcing under the deck to spread the load. Glass work was the worst, next was running No 6 AWG from the batteries in the back up to the windless where you couldn't see them (in the deck to hull joint area). Had to loose the top mounted cleat, and then split up the forward nav lights (I did cheap out on the lights however).
