When I bought Imagine she had a 35lb knock off CQR
. We drug a couple of times, and I bought a 55lb Delta
before we left St. Maarten. We stopped dragging, but later I could see the chain was worn in spots.
Since I have a Maxwell windlass
I called to see if I could get a larger gypsy
. I wanted to go from 5/16 to 3/8 chain. After a very detailed conversation with Maxwell
they convinced me that the 5/16 was large enough for my size boat. We have no problems with dragging. Our problem is sometimes getting the anchor
up. We have to sit on top of it, and let the boat's motion wiggle it loose.
