They are spring loaded so you have to pull a rope tripper line for them to open. Seattle Marine sells them.

Looking for a source to buy a large pelican hook for a quick release for my anchor and not have to run up to the bow when it's snotty.
All I can find is a 4 inch stainless or brass size maximum. (I actuall have a 4inch stainless)
Thanks.
Ron ,are you looking for the old 6 inch brass one's...if so i think a tackle shop by me still had a few....Sea Isle sport in freeport...i can check for you tomorrow.(no fishing SE25)

I spliced a small loop in the end of my ploy and keep it over a cleat on the gunwale in the cockpit and just let it go but you have to make sure there are no snags in it's path.

I do the same thing Tuna Pursuit does. I tried the pelican hook thing and just turned out to be a pain in the ass sometimes. I usually had the tag line sometimes roll up on the mainline. Now I just release the line in the cockpit.

I acctually bought a roller from west marine and made myself a bracket that I mounted on the bow. It's got a hoop over it and two leads and it guides the line right out & keeps me swinging off the center line. I'll post a picture of it later. I could make more if anyone wants one.

a large pelican hook is not necessary, I put a 4 inch brass one on a 37 duffy and it holds it just fine, the 6inch ones are more than enough

I use a snap swivel with a light line attached to the pin going back to my cockpit. I have a block under the bow pulpit creating an endless line so I can set, release, retrieve and reset the anchor line from the cockpit all the time. Buy a snap swivel with the strongest pin spring possible this will eliminate accidental release while setting. Don't attached the anchor line directly to the snap swivel use another regular swivel in between. This eliminates the rope loop getting caught when swivel releases the metal on metal slides off much better (this doesn't sound possible but under stress this will happen 100% of the time with some snap swivels)
