Will 35# CQR Fit PSC 31 Rollers?
 
I have a 15Kg/33# Bruce which fits fine. I bought a 35# Manson Supreme but couldn't get it to fit along side the Bruce. So now I'm thinking of adding a 35# CQR but want to make sure it fits before paying the shipping.

Does anyone else with a 31 have the 35# CQR? If so, what is your second anchor? A picture of the fit would be nice.

Steve,
The 35 CQR fits great. You do have to wiggle it past the bobstay little on the way up but it locks in to the roller just fine.

I have since switched to a Spade. My second anchor is a Danforth 20H that lives on the pulpit. I'm not crazy about the mounting but haven't come up with a better solution yet.

Ditto. We use one and it fits fine.

Our second anchor is a Delta 25#, and our third (at the stern anchor locker) is a Fortress FX-16. I recently gave away our fourth anchor and rode, a Fortress FX-11, to a friend.

I would prefer to have a Bruce/claw-style as our second anchor, instead of two plows. I can't justify a Rocna/Manson at this time.

On our 31 ( 1988 hull# 26) we have a 10kg Bruce on the port roller and a 35lbs genuine CQR on the STBD roller. The CQR uses the Neptune Windless. I manage the Bruce by hand. No issue stowing either. The Bruce takes a bit of twisting to get past the bobstay but not a big deal.

Ed, do you have a picture of your anchor arrangement?

The Island Lady, 1989, #56, has a 35 CQR on the starboard and a Bruce on the port. Both fit nicely. It has a Muir electric windlass to help with all the chain on the CQR.

The stern anchor that lives on the stern rail is a Danforth 20H ( certainly acts as a great break in an emergency).
