Retiring Old Anchors

I am an advocate for equipping your boat with the best anchor possible.

This genuine CQR anchor was apparently still in use.

Re: Retiring Old Anchors

Don't panic, they had an almost identical back up CQR that was in much better shape

Re: Retiring Old Anchors

Saw a guy in a power boat drop an old, rusty, bent Danforth on two ft of chain and a tattered rope in Mission Bay, California. Then he backed until the rope broke. He brought out another Danforth in worse shape, tied what remained of the rope to it with a couple of overhand knots and threw that over. Of course he then left in the dinghy headed to the nearest bar.

Re: Retiring Old Anchors

Apparently, it was used as a mooring and not anchoring. I'll bet the boat had bird poop or seal chet all over it.

Re: Retiring Old Anchors

the ol d cqr is much maligned by those unable to set them. isnt that hard to set them corectly--after all i did so for years before i finally broke down and bought a new fangled ultra modern bruce anchor.... lol

btw any anchor is usable to kedge yourself off a shoal after you drag into it.
it doesnt even have to be pretty and shiny to do that.....
