Well, my mind isn''t made up. It''s my funds that are limited. I have been eyeballing several unused anchors on boats in the marina and have been trying to extricate a Bruce from a friend of mine who seldom anchors and on the rare occasion when he does, he uses his 45 CQR with 3/8 BBB. His Bruce 33 sits there untouched, and has for years.
Now, if I can get that from him, and hook it to my 1/4 BBB chain, I can give it a few tries and see what I think of the setup and the holding of the anchor.
Of course, I will still have to upgrade my chain and chain gypsy to 3/8, I will still have to trade off the 5/16 and 1/4 chain for a secondary 3/8, and I will still have to get a bigger second anchor, but by then I will have spent another $2000.
It goes without saying, now that it has been said repeatedly in this thread, that I have to upgrade. That''s why I asked. My mind isn''t made up, but I DO have personal preferences. I can''t allow them to mislead me, because after all, some people like multihulls and look where it brings them. Can''t have too many PDQ''s crisscrossing the bay.
