    I love your tests and you do have a cool boat. I just wonder if your camera with its float is actually helping the set by leveraging anchor to a good initial position, There was an anchor made with some flotation on rear end for this purpose based on this theoretical principle. I think your work has increased the understanding of how anchors set and work. I bought my first Spade anchor from Tunisia long before they were available in the US. I still have that aluminum anchor in my bilge as a spare and use an Ultra as my primary which in my opinion is a well made shiny SS very slightly modified Spade.
