Which Side to Deploy Anchor in Bow?

Recommended Posts

 Okay, probably another silly question but is it fine to install an anchor lock and deploy the anchor on the same side as which the bow mounted trolling motor is facing (i.e. - trolling motor  as shown in the attached document is going left to right with prop hanging over edge on the right). In the document I attached I'm showing the place of the anchor lock which is hypothetical as I haven't installed it yet, the previous boat owner used to deploy the anchor on the opposite side (left side of boat) below the trolling motor but there isn't any room for the anchor lock on that side. I don't like drilling holes in my boat so I want to make sure I install this thing in the correct location. Thanks in advance for any help answering my inane ramblings :D.

Quit using those back in the 70s 😉

 

I simply tie off to a cleat

 

I find it a lot easier to troll over the top of the anchor, lift up 2-3 times to make sure it loose.

If you are going to use one that is the best place for it in my opinion.
