Once again, that's not a CQR, that's a Delta. Maybe some people (or person) here don't know how to read a track or understand how an anchor rode behaves in various wind and current states?

I seriously am concerned that this is quickly turning into one of those anchor threads..

"Once again, that's not a CQR, that's a Delta."

A cheaply created knockoff anchor,, a CQR sans the CQR hinge will behave the same after it is set.

The hassle is still lack of area in ooze , regardless of what it is called.

In softer bottoms it takes a 60# CQR style to match a 35 # Danforth style, real or aluminum knock off.

Bigger area is better in soft bottoms.

Here is an anchor question. Is the amount of mud that comes up with the anchor proportional to its holding power? Is there such a thing as an anchor with great holding that comes up clean? My experience has been that the Danforth type anchors are the most difficult to clean due to the narrow space between the flukes and the shaft. A plow seems to come up cleanest and is easy to clean.

Good question , but cleaning is not required with a good bow roller, or better a hawse hole storage.

You still have to scrub the stinky chain if it is stowed below.

Depending on the soft bottom; its consistency will often determine the amount of "mud" left clinging to an anchor. As FF said in post 24... "The hassle is still lack of area in ooze , regardless of what it is called". Bigger area is better in soft bottoms."

For soft bottoms I believe Danforth style is best. I also believe that Fortress FX anchors are Danforth on steroids for soft bottoms... as well as their working well in other bottom conditions. I changed over from Danforth to Fortress.

Cleaning mud off any anchor is very small price to pay for not needing to experience anchor drag with potential for thousands of dollars calamity occurring.

Come on folks. Lets get refocused here. The thread is about a free anchor.

Forky: Is the anchor still available?

Larry

The word free can be not so good if the item provided is not so good under certain circumstances.

So... a multi post-discussion regarding the "free" item's capabilities is not off base; as said item's capabilities may not be well understood by a person who takes-up on the free offer. IMO, nothing wrong with experienced persons commenting on the item, in hopes of guidance for the item's next user... whom ever that may be.

Morning Larry. That's the Delta outside at home under the giant butterfly. The Admiral has requested I hang it in the fence for her. With the knock off CQR and Danforth style anchor. Those were aboard Patricia Louise II at one time as well. Click image for larger version

What does it say about a Delta anchor when you can't give it away? I mean really⁉️

The price might be ok, but it came with a lousy rap sheet.
