PRODUCT INFORMATION

The Cadet is offered in a clear brush finish that really brings out the beauty of the stainless steel. The width is identical to its big brother, but the overall length is a shade over 11”, compared to the 18″ of the Big Brother. It will also accommodate the same size anchors as its big brother, up to 1 3/4″ round bar and 1 1/2″ square river anchors.

Our Cleat Bracket  accessory will NOT work for this new version of the Cadet.

Made of1/8" stainless steel. All stainless steel hardware. Mounting holes to accommodate 5/16" hardware (not included). Rollers and guards, made of UV resistant polypropylene.

Also comes with a 3/4" rear impact plate to keep your anchor from resting on the bow of your boat.

It is highly recommended to use an anti-seize compound on all stainless steel hardware installations.

  • I'm thinking of installing a caddie on my 18' Achilles Hypalon with an 18 lb Fluke Danforth. My plan is to mount it with 2 Scotty glue on mounts (8 mounting bolts) with 2 part glue. With the anchor line secured to a D ring inside the boat I'm imagining most of the pressure being downward into the bow and not shearing or pulling. What are your thoughts? Has this been accomplished before on an inflatable boat with this sized anchor?

    Hi Tim,

    First, I don't know of anyone or have any experience using the Scotty glue on mounts, you would be the first ;)

    I can envision that when your anchor is stowed in the Caddie and secured aft to your d-ring, it would solve the pull from the back of your pad but may cause pull from the front. Especially when under way with your bow bouncing up and down. If you do plan on being under way with it stowed, you may want to find a way to also secure the front.

    If you only plan on using it only while on anchor, I can see how that would probably be sufficient, just securing the anchor line to the boat.

    If the epoxy is strong as it should be, in reality, you probably would be ok without any additional support, but like you, I would be a bit concerned.

    If you do plan on setting this up, I would love to see some pictures of it in use, so we can post it on our site to help others in your position.

  • Does it matter if the anchor caddie is placed further out from the bow point?

    Hi Jack,

    No it doesn't matter, but you do want to make sure that you have at least 3 bolts installed.

  • Hello. I have a Sea Cat 21 and we use Bruce and Danforth anchors. The cadet will work fot this type of achors? Do you have experience on the cadet for Sea Cat boats?

    Hi Servio,

    Yes, the Cadet will work for these types of anchors!

    At the end of the day, most anchor nests consist of a metal frame with rollers on them.

    As far as experience with a Sea Cat boat and the Cadet, no but as in the previous sentence, it would be fine.

    Thanks for the question!

  • will this work with a 18 lb Richter anchor?

    Hi David,

    The Richter anchor will not nest in the channel of the Cadet like a rocker style anchor or other anchors with the smaller diameter shaft will. In the stowed position, I see the Richter being pulled against the rollers and the 2 hooks on top of the Cadet, but would need to be constrained (pulled back) against the Cadet and secured by a cleat behind the Cadet or any other anchor nest for that matter.

    As far as retrieving and deploying the anchor, you wouldn't have any issue since the rope/rode will set in the rollers.

    I hope this answers your question and don't hesitate to contact if you need anything else.

  • I have a 17 ft bluewater fiberglass open bow boat... what caddie would be right for a short open bow deck with front light?

    Hi Patrick, You can go with any of our anchor nests, but if you go with the Cadet or Cadet Max, you will have to shim it up, so that when you have your anchor stowed in it, the end of the anchor won't hit your bow. If you don't want to deal with shimming, you can choose either one of our Originals or the PRO.

    As far as the bow light, we have designed a Riser, for that specific issue.

    Hope this helps?

    Don't hesitate to contact us directly with any further questions.

  • How wide is the anchor caddie cadet model?

    Hi Samuel, the Cadet, Cadet Max, as well as the Original are all a hair under 3 1/2" wide.

    Thanks for your interest in Anchor Caddie and let us know if you have any more questions.

  • What comes in the box besides the anchor caddie cadet. Do the backing plates come with it?

    Hi Ron,

    It does not come with any plates. No installations really require them, they are more of a "might want it" situation.

    Hope this helps.
