Anchor Setup

I have a Tashiba-31 with a Cayman 88 windlass, 200-ft of chain and a 35-lb CPQ anchor.

As you can see in one of the pictures, the anchor is sitting awkwardly. I'm not sure how I should be fastening the anchor down when raised. The two attachment points between the windlass and the anchor are actually for the staysail.

Re: Anchor Setup

It's not 100% clear in the pictures, but it appears that there's insufficient room in your roller(s) for the anchor to sit correctly. Correctly meaning with the shank being close to parallel to the deck. And that so some degree this is caused by the anchor's getting stuck/jammed in the roller hole in the sprit, along with something in the setup further aft preventing the shank from being able to lay flat even if the anchor didn't have the other issue. Clearer, & larger pics of the setup would help. Since right now it's tough to see things well enough to figure out where the problem is. And there may be more than one causitive issue.

Re: Anchor Setup

It looks to me like the pivot point (or the trip-line eye) on the CQR is getting hung up between the roller and the beam under the pulpit. Did this anchor come with the boat? From the pictures it looks like you're going to have to modify something or try a different anchor.

EDIT: Can you get the anchor to sit right if you pull the shank up vertically by hand?

Re: Anchor Setup

There is a hole in the crown. You can attach a strop there and secure it.

I think the angle and the odd block is there because of where the winch is seated. It is a 'high' installation.
