Yes, that one is a 45LB CQR which for here is fine and I will keep that one however the other roller will have a next generation 60LB.

Congratulations, sweet looking boat, and best of luck with her... Pretty hard to go wrong with a design by Bill Lapworth, and a build by Islander/Wayfarer...

Hope you plan on swapping out that 'obsolete' anchor ASAP, however...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Interesting to see how boats have evolved. Now so dependent on technology. Need to call the IT guy when something breaks. Hard to do on passage.
Broadblue started out as Prout. Prout made some great blue water cats like their 39'. No resemblance to current offerings.
