Anchoring, chain diameter is a big difference?
OK, I read many things from CQR and a few for the bruce, I also investigate on the Delta, specially a report from Charles E. Kanter (www.hypermax.com/multihullsmag/magazine/articles/delta.htm) a test done over three years of cruising that is in my thinking impresive, I have been using always a CQR on my older boat a 31 moody I had worked well, but when I always looked at the anchor it had almost always an ear sticking out of the ground. And for what I read the CQR should be at least 35 lbs to start working well....The Bruce I donīt know exactly why but it doesnīt inspire me confidence (personal feeling), it may be stupid but that also counts when selecting an anchor, ( I may be wrong). So I will give a try to the Delta which I like , then again will be more important a heavier anchor or a heavier rode ?, I think the second if the anchor size is correct will be more important, specially if the anchor has been able to stick to the ground....
