Great information

I like the Donzi because they are all composite construction and of course, their reputation for making a very solid boat. I like the lines in the Nordic better and they seem to have more room. ...

I brought this up in the Donzi forum, also. I think it's funny to have a bow anchor when you can't really access the bow (unless open, of course). I am curious as to how people get to this crucial...
