Multiple Anchors
We currently carry a 35lb Delta and a 34lb Manson Ray on our bow rollers. We like the Ray for some conditions but the Delta does drag in heavy winds. Hence, we're thinking about buying a Manson Supreme. We've read all the positive reviews, etc. but we're worried about fitting the two anchors on the same bow roller.
Has anyone tried this ?

Re: Multiple Anchors
We had two CQRs (35lb and 25lb) on the bow but switched to one 44lb Rocna - similar design as the Manson. The anchor fits fine by itself, but the roll bar on the anchor prohibits mounting a second anchor.
Without getting into an anchor debate, I felt comfortable upsizing the anchor and only having one "ready" anchor. However, I left the second anchor rode attached and ready to shackle on a second anchor, if necessary. For me it was a fair trade (seems like everything is a tradeoff on a boat): I gave up having a quick deploying second anchor for better holding with the bigger, better designed primary anchor, and also decreased the total weight on the bow (60lbs to 44lbs).

Re: Multiple Anchors
Thanks to both of you for your replies. And I like the way you have your anchors properly secured on Irish Eyes !
