New Generation Anchor on the 37

Is anyone using a Mantus or Rocna anchor on their 37?

I'm wanting to upgrade my groundtackle and have been thinking of getting a 45 lb. Mantus, just wondering how the new anchors fit on the factory anchor rollers, etc.

Thanks.

Re: New Generation Anchor on the 37

Dale,
I have a 35 lb Manson on the bow of my PSC 34. I think the bow setup is similar to yours. I drilled a hole through the anchor to hold it in place with a 1/2 inch pin that was already there, but the anchor still rocks from side to side (much more than my old Bruce 33 lb.). To further hold it from rocking I run a bungy cord from the roll hoop to the bow pulpit rail and it works well.

Thanks. I was wondering about the roll bar clearing the bowsprit.

If you go to the Rocna website under knowledge base, bow compatibility, there is a photo of Norstar our 34 PSC with a Rocna 15 on the bow roller. Fits like it was made for it.

Re: New Generation Anchor on the 37

I just added a Mantus 30kg to my PSC37. It is one size up from the recommendation, but after the first night you have anchor problems a little overkill usually sounds good. I attached some pictures. The one thing I liked about the Mantus was the ability to take it apart and store it if needed. (Maybe used as a storm anchor) However, the picture of it on the bow roller shows it fits OK. You can't see it, but on the other roller the original anchor on my boat is still there, a 35# CQR. It is a little tight with both, but I think I would probably take the CQR off before the mantus. I don't have much experience using it yet, but will let you know how it holds.

second anchor?

Can you fit a second next to it? Like a 35 CQR - on your 34?

Like I said in the post above, you can't really see it but my original #35 CQR is still on the 2nd roller. It is tight, and I had to pivot the head to get it to fit, but it is there. My boat is a 37' boat, so I'm not sure if it would fit on a 34. Going one size smaller on the mantus would probably be right for a 34' PSC as well.

Re: New Generation Anchor on the 37

We switched from a CQR, which we used successfully for decades, to a Manson Supreme and we really like the performance. We considered the Rocna, but found the Manson to be quite a bit less money. Our boat is a 34 foot trawler and we have anchored in just about every bottom type and conditions you can think of. Chuck

Re: New Generation Anchor on the 37

The 37 bow rollers look the same as the 34 to me. The only problem I have with a 60 pound CQR and a 34 pound Bruce is that in order to deploy the Bruce or recover it the huge CQR needs to be let out about 8 or 10 inches. I would think that if one were to hang a huge Manson or similar you might have to deploy it before the secondary and recover the secondary first. With 2 huge Mansons they would also overlap and you would have to deploy the last one recovered before the first one recovered would slide out.

Re: New Generation Anchor on the 37

Here is a Manson 45 on a PS34. Fits great, but I only have one anchor on the roller. A second could be hard.
