I have 275 feet of 5/16 chain and about 6 feet of line on the main anchor and
30 feet of chain and the rest line on the backup anchor. Primary anchor is a
45 lb CQR and backup is a 33lb Bruce. The line on the main anchor is spliced to chain and a bulkhead connection. If I need to leave the anchor the chain gets let out the line cut. The Bruce has basically never been used, so the spare anchor on the bow may be gotten rid of.

No ill effects on the trim. On the Crealock 37 the concern seem to be more on keeping weight out of the stern rather then the bow to maintain trim.

I have a Lofrens Cayman which is pretty much identical to the Tigres except that the Cayman lacks the cleat the Tigres has. Been very happy with its performance. Installed it on the boat around 1996 replacing a manual windless and it was one of the best upgrades I have ever done on the boat.
