This is an issue with the Crealock design IMHO. It really should have a short bowsprit for this and other reasons. In a chop it will for sure hit te bow when it swings as you raise it if you are not very careful. i have not noticed this to be any worse with the Manson than with our previous 33 lb CQR.
Once the shank starts into the roller, it is no longer a problem.
