    Bad news: while pulling my boat, the yard mangled the anchor roller (anchor was removed for storage).
    Good news: they will have a new one fabricated.
    I’ve never liked the original. Way too small and short for my CQR primary. We cruise in the Great Lakes. Frequently anchor overnight.
    Any advice on improvements or upgrades?
    Thank you.

    Upgrade the CQR to a new generation anchor?

    Good idea. Thanks. Would one fit in a bow roller similar to the original? If not, what mods would be necessary?
    I’m not up on the newest ground tackle. What type and size would be recommended for an H37?

    A Mantus/Rochna/Manson type didn't fit on my old roller that did work with my CQR. Go to West and match up the anchor type you want with one of several rollers. take pictures and take pics to the yard.

    What I didn't like about the roller on my H356 was that it had an edge at the end. Since these boats sail around on their anchors I was always worried that the edge would saw through the rode (Never happened). If I had any say in the design I would have the end flared. On my boat the rode went through the windlass. All chain would help but then there would be less shock absorption. Or so it is proposed. You could use a bridle but that does complicate the system.

    I have a Bruce anchor but when I eventually upgrade will definitely go to a mantus.
