Originally bought as part of the running backstay. We have a coated wire that runs from the mast to a few feet above deck level. The block and tackle is attached to this and to the padeye on deck. The block and tackle is used to tension the backstay. I have never yet felt the need to rig the runners since I have never seen the slightest hint of mast movement.

I also use this as a preventer. I run it from the middle of the boom to the cleat on the rail and attach it with a webbing loop. It is not really ideal for this, but since we already have it on the boat we have not yet rigged a better solution and it works fine.

Finally it will be used to recover a MOB if ever needed. Run from the middle of the boom it puts this right at the lifeline gate. We could use it to help pull someone up to the gate to get them back onboard.

Thought I'd add more pics of a 45lb Manson on a 34 PSC on our blog, shows the second anchor roller slot.

Anyone with Manson Supreme?

We carry a Manson supreme 45 and a 30+ Bruce on our older C37. The Manson will tap on the bow, and does want to foul a bit with the Bruce. We LOVE the Manson and since we are doing some repairs to that region, we are planning some modifications. As stated, our boat is older and is pre Pacific Seacraft, so the anchor assembly may have changed.

Dear Thor,

We have the 35lb Manson Supreme on our PSC 37 bow roller with a danforth tipped sideways on the other roller. The two "play well together" and the Manson supreme is simply supreme. The West/Yachtworld anchor test showed it held to 5,000 lbs on a 5:1 scope in 2 of three locations, no idea why not in the other. Usually the only problem is getting it out! We dragged only once when it was blowing 45 knots sustained and I neglected to factor in the height of the waves (breaking over our bow in our quote protected unquote anchorage). In 8 feet of water a five foot wave alters the geometry significantly -- as I learned the hard (but not too hard) way.

A great anchor in my opinion.

Re: Anyone with Manson Supreme?

We have a 35 lb. Manson Supreme on the bow roller of our PSC 34 (similar to Rain Dog's), but we drilled a 1/2" hole so we could use a pin to keep it in place. Sorry, I don't have any photos, but could take on soon. The pin helps, but the anchor still rocks up and down so if unrestrained it can hit the bow. We just keep it in place with a bungy cord.

This is an issue with the Crealock design IMHO. It really should have a short bowsprit for this and other reasons. In a chop it will for sure hit te bow when it swings as you raise it if you are not very careful. i have not noticed this to be any worse with the Manson than with our previous 33 lb CQR.

Once the shank starts into the roller, it is no longer a problem.

Re: Anyone with Manson Supreme?

We also have the 45 on our Pearson 422. Like Rain Dog, we sail the Chesapeake and have been incredibly impressed with how well it holds. During the Derecho last season, we ended up short scoped (4:1 - way too short for my taste!) due to limited swing area on an all chain rode. Sat in the cockpit with the engine running just in case. We sailed back and forth on the anchor somewhat, but didn't budge.
