Anchor Choices On W 32 Bowspirt

Linda and John Mendoza

Besides the CQR, Delta, and Bruce anchors, what other anchors have Westsailors been able to stow on the rollers on their bowspirit?

Linda and John Mendoza

Dave, perhaps if one wanted to use a Rocna (an anchor that I believe would not fit on the rollers), one could "pull" it up against the bobstay? What do you think.


Dave Kall

When we had our 32 we carried a CQR 45# and a 22H Danforth. The Danforth we pulled up against our bobstay. It all worked well. Someitmes I put the plastic shroud covers on the bobstay sometimes the UV just junked them up and it was bare.

Dave Kall

You maybe could. The Ronca is heavier but I never carried mine really tight.

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!
