Time for action methinks.
Hey TDW, we have the 33 lb Rocna and love it. We only have one year on it, but it's holds very well and hasn't dragged yet even with major wind shifts (doing circles through the night) and 35+ knot squalls. Like JRP mentions below about the 35 lb CQR, we don't have to handle it all that much because it's on the bow roller, but I don't have much trouble hauling it up by hand. No windlass. Not that I wouldn't LIKE a windlass, but the 33 lbs isn't as bad as I thought it would be. I might think of it differently without the bow roller though.

Just an FYI: We ended up purchasing the Lewmar Horizon Claw 33 pounder. She's a brute, but I'm confident it'll hold our 28 footer firmly.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Bill—

You'd be best off starting a new thread with the windlass types as your thread subject. However, since you asked... I'd recommend the Lewmar H3 over the Lofrans. It has a higher maximum load rating and takes up less deck space, especially height. I believe it is also less money.
