We have never had much luck with CQR anchors, It was maybe us not the CQR but we have used a Danforth and so far no problems in almost all types of bottoms. We also carried a Luke rock hook that was very helpfull in the bottoms the danforth was not good in !There was a Manson on the Defever we sold a while back, and after useing that in The Bahamas
, and Mexico
last year, we will be changeing our anchors with our next boat !! I will still carry my danforths, but my primary anchor
will be a Manson, Delta
, Rocna(spl?) style after useing one Im sold these anchors set so well and so easy Im really sold on them ! and Im hard to change from my tryed and true !!! just a old sailor who learned something NEW !!
