Hello I hope to upgrade my Hanse311 “Kudos” built in 2002
with a Windless & Rocna anchor + 40 metre of 8mm chain .
Has anyone succeeded with a similar & reliable installation ?
If so pls advice dimensions of suitable mounting bracket(s) .
Many thanks
Marcus

I posted some comments and pictures in another thread for a 315.


The engineer who fitted my system on my 341 initially said he would fit 6mm chain.  I though that a bit light, so went for 7mm and I actually have 60m, the post above was wrong.

8mm chain is about 30% heavier than the 7mm.    40m of 8mm chain is about the same weight as my 60m of 7mm chain.   I know that when I load my chain onto my 341 the bow goes down quite a bit.  I would think about the weight impact on a 311 before you finally decide on 8mm.
