Scotty Anchor Lock
I have had two of these for three years now and have had no problem with them. I have them fore and aft for when I fish by myself I don't have to do a lot of moving around in the boat when setting or retrieving the anchor's.

Scotty Anchor Lock
I mounted the unit at the bow of my Wenonah Backwater Canoe along with a cleat at the middle seat. Regarding the locking system, I'm sure that it works as advertised when in a regular boat, but my seating position in the canoe (middle or aft) results in a situation where I cannot release the lock without standing. As I'm sure we're all aware of, standing in a canoe is not a good idea (personal experience). I raised the locking lever and inserted a fixed bolt and sleeve to prevent the locking system from engaging and it works great!
I highly recommend this product as it seems well built and sturdy.

Scotty anchoring system
I attached this to the left foot rest on my pontoon boat and it seems to fit very securely. I haven't tried it out, but I think it will work very well

This Scotty Anchor lock looks good but what is the max weight of the boat that it can handle ? I know you get what you pay for but I have a Lowe FM 175 fishing boat which weights around 1200 pounds, could this Anchor lock handle that weight with out breaking off at the neck ?
I use a 16 lb anchor fore and aft on my 14 ft Treacker. It is about the same weight as your boat (1300 lb) and I have had no problems. If you go to the Scotty web site they will give you a max weight that they will work with. I think that I am about at the max now. I hope this helps you out.
