Here are a couple of photos showing my 15 lb CQR anchor stowed on Maridadi’s foredeck. As you can see the anchor is secured by tying it at various points to 4 purpose-made teak blocks (through each of which a short length of captive cord has been threaded) attached to the deck. Each cord is tied with a reef knot. Even when under way at an appreciable angle of heel the anchor has never been dislodged. The anchor is shackled to 50 metres of chain and 30 metres of anchorplait nylon rope which is stored in the chain locker. I also carry a small fisherman type anchor as a kedge.
The photo below also shows the bow roller at the stemhead – note the absence of a forestay attachment which is not required for this Junk rig Corribee.
