Don and Margaret Lacoste

My two cents worth is the 33lb Bruce anchor that came with our W-32. It was our primary anchor of choice for most of our winter cruising last year. The boat also came with a 46lb CQR that I used only once when we were waiting out a storm outside of Belhaven last November. I only had 100 feet of scope out in 18' of water. We had sustained winds of over 50 with gusts into the 60's. We did begin to drag a bit and I decided to move the boat forward and angled away from the Bruce and deployed the CQR. I might have been just as well off with the Bruce by adding another 50 feet or so of scope.

If I were buying, I would consider the next size up Bruce.
