See What I Mean?

Stare at a drawing too long and you start worrying about details. This is a test fit of a 45lb CQR on the bow pulpit, side view. The design has now moved beyond angle iron for roller slots to custom cheek plates with holes for the anchor roller axles placed specific for various style anchors. Fitted so far: Delta and CQR. Need to do at least a Bruce/Claw as well.

Don't forget to test for a Mason Supreme and Rocna. On your boat I would look at a 25Kg (55lb) Rocna, or a Mason Supreme 45lb. In this case bigger IS better.
