CQR drags Dan forth Holds ???

I have a 33 foot sail boat and last year on a cruise around 2,000 miles twice wile I was anchoring with my CQR I drug. My CQR is a 35 pounder with all chain. I had pulled up in Roach harbor and it was a fairly tight anchorage. So I pulled up and dropped then I fell back on the wind and paied out around a five to one. When I went to set the anchor it just drug. The next time I was headed up the Columbia river and hit a 40 knot blow. I tuck in behind an Island that blocked the waves but did little for the wind. I pulled up and dropped in about 18 feet of water and a sandy bottom, again I fell back on the wind this time to around a 6 to 1. And the anchor would not set. I pulled it back in and tried again this time with a little less throttle. And it kind of set then as a safety I just through out my 30 pound Danforth with 20 foot of chain and, and then 1/2 road. I put out around a 5 to 1 just in a heap on the bottom by morning I was set fast of the Dan forth. And the CQR had broken free. Why are CQR so popular.??????????
