I'm looking for some input on an anchor system on the bow of my 15' aluminum all purpose boat to use in rivers, salt, and lakes. The ideal setup would be something I could quickly release as soon as the motor is killed. I've heard bad things about the "can" setups with noise and such, but it seems like a safe way to hold the anchor when going from spot to spot. Another option is to let the anchor hang below a pulley, using an anchor cleat and a dock cleat to hold the rope in place, but not sure if that is the safest idea. I'm curious what you guys with river sleds are using? My 30# pyramid anchor form my drift boat could be used for rivers and I may end up getting one of the rocking chair type anchors for everything else.
