Re: Question regarding Rocna Anchor's Roll Bar

Thanks for the additional responses. It's great to hear from users.
Not to be argumentative or troll-y, I just don't get the dissatisfaction with CQRs at least in the PNW. I've been using a 45lb.er on both a Mariah 31 Pacific Seacraft) and our now for sale Fisher 37. We've never dragged after an initial set and have left the boat for hours even at times when an unpredicted gale came up. We've been anchored out near Johnstone Strait
in 4 ft. fetch for three days and nights with nowhere else to go and we did fine. (Actually the dock at Shoal Bay on E. Thurlow was only about 50' away
but there was no way to get there safely).
That kind of success over 3 decades makes me extremely reluctant to switch to a new "gen" anchor although I wouldn't mind borrowing and testing one to see if I'd feel about using one.


Thanks again. I'm very glad to have found this forum. One of the best around!
