Our entrance into the aluminum anchor nest market, with the Anchor-Caddie PRO, comes from many hours on the water over several years, understanding not only what makes a good anchor nest, but what makes the best anchor nest and we feel we have stepped up to the challenge and succeeded.
The pivoting cleat allows you to have your anchor stowed with the anchor cradle on one side, adjusting to 3 anchor widths, 1 1/2", 1 3/4" & 2" anchors. Deploy your anchor and flip the cradle over and put cleat into action.

- Protective coating that cleans and protects the aluminum
- Built in pivoting cleat, holds 3/8" - 5/8" rope
- UHMW & HDPE rollers, guards and trim
- All stainless steel hardware

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
I have a 2003 Arima Sea chaser. I want to replace the anchor mount. Which unit is best for my boat.
I understand you are re-engineering your Minn Kota adapter plate mounts for use with the Anchor Caddie Pro. Will the new mounts accommodate a Minn Kota Riptide Terrova 112, Minn Kota Product # 1363732 (60")?
Yes, but our adapter kit mounts to a Minn Kota quick release bracket top plate. and will be compatible to the Minn Kota Quick Release Bracket, RTA-54 which is compatible with your Riptide Terrova.
If you already have your Riptide on a quick release bracket, you will need an additional quick release bracket of the same model to use our adapter kit. If not, you will need 2 of the same quick release brackets, 1 for your motor and the other for our adapter kit that allows you to install the Anchor Caddie anchor nest.
Does it come with spreader plates? Or do I need them?
No, it does not come with them and they are not required to install your Anchor Caddie.
Is it possible to get the pro model with out the predrilled holes for mounting?
Unfortunately not while keeping the same price. We make these in high quantity lots and all features are laser cut at the same time to keep our costs under control.
Although it is possible to do a 1 off, folks would not want to see the price of doing that 1.
Does the pro work for 15lb anchors?
YES, it will work with our 15lb anchor!
Does the pro come with the rubber and bottom mounting plate
Unfortunately it does not. There are too many installation types and a very small percentage of installations actually need them, so if it came together, a lot of them would just end up in the trash.
Thanks for your interest and let me know if you have any more questions.
Will this mount to a Terrova trolling motor mount if I have a spare top plate without drilling? And should that mount be strong enough for fishing the Columbia River out of a 2075 Aluminum Lund for sturgeon?
Short answer, NO.
That is the reason we came up with our Trolling Motor Adapter Kit
As far as being strong enough, that would soley depend on the installation of your bottom plate of your Minn Kota quick release base that is mounted to your boat. If that is a sound installation, then yes!
Let me know if you have any more questions.
Dimensions? Anchor size/boat size recommendations? Godfrey Fun Deck 248.
The PRO is about 18" long and 4-1/2" wide. The rollers would hang over your bow, so you would have at most, 14" on your bow deck, but the installation can be pushed out to have half on the bow and half hanging over if needed. Here's a link to our spec's and installation recommendations.
As far as anchor size, it really depends on the type of current you will be anchoring in. A 25lb anchor with an extra 6 foot of chain, brings you a little over 32lbs and should be sufficient for most situations for your boat.
Thanks for the question!
I have a Thunder Jet and do not have access to under the bow for the nuts . How would you suggest I mount this caddie pro on my TJ
Hi Peter, The 2 most common options are: 1) Cut a hole on the vertical wall behind the bow deck and install an inspection plate like the picture below. This is the easiest and most economical of the 2. You will now have access to nut & bolt your Anchor Caddie. 2) We offer a weld on threaded plate that you weld on the top of the bow. This plate is 1/2" thick aluminum and with the Anchor Caddie hole pattern. Once it is welded on the bow, you just bolt it on with the hardware that comes with our weld on threaded plate. You can see that here, https://www.anchor-caddie.com/products/weld-on-threaded-plate-original-cadet I hope this helps and let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks, Paul Anderson
Is hardware included to mount the Anchor Caddie?
Sorry, do to varying boat types, bow thickness and styles, it would be very difficult to know what bolt length is needed. You can watch our installation video to help guide you, Anchor Caddie Installation
