I am looking to fit a anchor trolley to my Manta Ray 12 and am looking to utilise the spots on the hull where there are indentations molded into the hull that look like they are made for an anchor trolley. Does anyone use these or do you just put blocks onto the hull itself. Any feedback much appreciated. Cheers Kev

The indents were designed for pad eyes but won't accept the Harken blocks used in the trolley kit from Native. You could add pulley blocks to installed pad eyes by way of cord or bungee though.

I made a anchor line on my manta ray off the back using the slot to run my line thru with pad eyes to hold in place and a pulley on right side of hull in front so all i do is pull towards me to lift the anchor. 5 pound dumb weight tie my rope in the center loose enough so it can roll put electric tape on each side to hold the rope in center. I can slow down in rapids or stop. This works great for me

Thanks guys, I ended up going with the Harken blocks as it just looks a bit neater than running pulley blocks off padeyes.. Cheers Kev

I am left-handed and fish left handed, mostly. Any reason I couldn't mount an anchor trolley on the left side of the boat?

Not at all. The only thing I would be aware of is keeping your paddle holder, if equipped, on the opposite side of the boat from your trolley. That'll keep it from being in the way of your anchor line if you stow it while anchored.

Thanks. I was thinking I should remount the paddle holder clip to the right side and also get a set of those new Groove-mounted paddle holders that double as places to set your rod securely while releasing a fish, changing rigs, etc.
