luke--your cqr and chain is ok--a bruce of 66 pounds(30 kg) is perfect for cruising mexican waters and catalina
. bruce loves rocky and sandy muddy stuff--buries itself down into it and hooks the rocks for extra grab-- the cqr will move a lot more on ye-- but with all chain--i do use 5/16 despite my friend's suggestion to go 3/8--when i get another windlass it will be 3/8 gypsy
so i have both and each handy--ye never know--this coat is good for bruce. knockoffs arent good--try to find original bruce.
the lofrans windlass at minneys is larger than the one i have (electric) my electric
is too small for boat
and awaits exchange for another bronze
manual..with larger gypsy
luke--if you are coming this way, prepare for 40 kt winds and 4 ft seas in some anchorages--and these are protected..LOL... 25 ft water
. the places to visit are worthy of this bs anchorage situation, so dont hesitate to visit--cruisers do help when a boat
decides to go walkabout. bottom is sand or mud with rocks. mud is rare and sand more prevalent--rocksamighty. glad ye have a boat like mine--you will love the biiiig winds off cabo--just north is a gust location --chubasco-ville, it seems--loved it in our boats...
