Delta anchor really self launching?
We currently use a 60 lb CQR. We don't really have any complaints, save one. It's not self-launching, which means I need to manhandle the 60 pound hunk, along with the related 3/8" chain, off the roller and down into the water before relying on the windless. Also, but much less of an issue, the CQR is not the easiest anchor to set. That said, once we get her in, she holds like a champ, at least in our experience.
Nevertheless, it's tempting to get a 70 lb Delta for the self-launching feature, and I guess it would be an added bonus that the Delta supposedly sets more easily.
My main question is whether the Delta in fact is a self-launching anchor off of a standard bow roller.
