As an FYI, when we had our 32 we carried the Danforth 22ht tight against the bobstay. Never a problem.

I found the 45 CQR much more reliable than the 35. Don't have any comparision to the Rocna but would caution to make sure you're comparing the same weight anchor to the same weight. Also; I'm not sure they're both optimimized for the same scope ratio.

When we deployed our CQR we set it going slowly about a knot down wind. We would let out the scope we wanted and then I would snub it up on the sampson post and spin the boat. If for some wierd bottom she wouldn't grab I would know it; and when she did grab, 20k lbs for boat going pulling on it and coming to a stop and spinning would set it great.

Fair Winds

ps this was all in Florida and the Carribean.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
