We are having a problem, Tivoli has a bow sprint with a bob stay. We recently purchased a Manson Supreme, this anchor
is much wider than our old CQR
. The problem is raising and lowering the anchor
past the stay. I am using a boat hook to pull the anchor as it reaches the stay then it is ok, same going down. I have a manual windlass
that allows me to lower it slowly to get past the stay while holding it out. This works ok, but not sure how it will be in chop trying to anchor or if my wife had to do it. I suppose I could also attach a lead to the anchor with a float, that might also work, just wondering if anyone else has had this problem? I have already had to slighty modify the platform to accomodate the shank.
