Rocna vs. CQR dimensions

I've digested as much info as I can and plan to swap out my 75lb CQR for a Rocna 40 (88lb). Since I have a stainless CQR, I have to go out to dinner and see how I feel about Galv v. SS over a dozen beers or a bottle of wine or both.

I've downloaded the dimensions of each to attempt to insure it will fit in my bow roller. Best I can tell, the Rocna is actually smaller, other than width.

If the CQR fits, any reason to think the Rocna will not?

How would one go about selling a stainless CQR? Too big to just keep around for a spare.

As well as the dimensions Rocna have a printout so you can make a cardboard copy .
As a bonus you get to act like a homeless person searching the rubbish bins for bits of cardboard big enough to make your “anchor”.
I think the Rocna tip is a bit longer than the CQR so its worth checking.

I printed out the Rocna diagragm and taped it all together. Based on measurements, the tip actually seems just a tad shorter. I was surprised. Partly why I thought to ask for input.

Might want to consider hanging on to the CQR to use an in in-line anchor for a storm setup or something a little more secure than a single. I've read that two anchors on the same line is the most secure you can have. The second anchor acts as a pig, holding down the chain, and of course, also will dig in itself. But it's a pain to set and recover, so you would only use that for a storm or a long term stay somewhere.

I have a CQR that hangs under the bowsprit/platform on Argyle. Because of the configuration, the roll boar on the Ronca/Manson won't fit, so I'm eventually going to go with a Spade. I plan on keeping the CQR around for just such an occasion.
