Re: Multiple Anchors

We had two CQRs (35lb and 25lb) on the bow but switched to one 44lb Rocna - similar design as the Manson. The anchor fits fine by itself, but the roll bar on the anchor prohibits mounting a second anchor.
Without getting into an anchor debate, I felt comfortable upsizing the anchor and only having one "ready" anchor. However, I left the second anchor rode attached and ready to shackle on a second anchor, if necessary. For me it was a fair trade (seems like everything is a tradeoff on a boat): I gave up having a quick deploying second anchor for better holding with the bigger, better designed primary anchor, and also decreased the total weight on the bow (60lbs to 44lbs).
