Anchor Caddie Cadet
The little brother to the Original, but follows the Anchor Caddie mantra of Stainless Steel and modularity.
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.
One of the exciting things about the Cadet is that although it comes as an apparent cut and dry bow roller, you will also have upgrade options. Upgrade options will include the rear impact plate and external rollers that are currently part of the original Anchor Caddie anchor nest,but not included on the Cadet. At this point, the upgrade options are only available through this website.
Made of clear powder coated 1/8" stainless steel. All stainless steel hardware. Mounting holes to accommodate 5/16" hardware (not included). Rollers and guards, made of UV resistant high density polyethylene.
One thing to keep in mind when you choose the Cadet or the Cadet Max, if you are installing it on a boat with a longer bow deck, the end of the anchor will likely rest on your bow. If this happens, the anchor will be elevated to where you cannot use the pin that comes with the Cadet. To avoid this, you can either raise your Cadet until the anchor clears your bow deck, or choose one of our other anchor nests. See screen shot below.
It is highly recommended to use an anti-seize compound on all stainless steel hardware installations.
