33 lb Rocna Vulcan

Any Manatee's that have used this anchor on the stock pulpit rollers, I,m interested in possible buying one, IF it would fit. Photos please if you have fitted one.

You can print out a profile of the anchor on the Rocna website. Tape it to a piece of cardboard or foam core, cut it out and try the fit.

As a general rule the Rocna don't fit well when they come up through a pulpit like yours does. Of course Danforth style anchors don't either and you're already living with that.

I suggest a non rollbar anchor like the Vulcan or Spade for your set up.

If you decide to buy one of the anchors mentioned, I'd love the chance to supply it.

Is your present anchor not performing or do you just want something new?

The 45 lb CQR has been my main anchor for a long, long time, but the new type anchors have proven themselves to be superior in real world use, so I'm thinking of changing out the CQR. I removed and sold the CQR knockoff on the other side of the pulpit and replaced it with a Fortress which is a great backup anchor.
I will check out the website Hopcar and get back with you if it looks like it would fit. I'm hoping the Vulcan shank would work, I know the original Rocna shank would not fit thru the Manatee's rollers.
Thanks for the information.
Disclaimer: Any discussions of the merits of the above mentioned anchors will fall on the deaf ears of the parties concerned and most likely the readers of this thread.

Bill: You may recall the Manatee "Fat Chance" which was a prolific user of Rocna anchors for yearly trips to the Bahamas. He began with a 44 lb. and sized-up to a something over 50 lb.. Both anchors fit well with no issues on the old rollers and pulpit. The new owner of the boat is Mike and Dotty (renamed "Cool Beans") and is a member of this forum, but I'm not sure how often they monitor it. They have kept the big anchor on the boat. I think the project blog of "Fat Chance" is still accessible on the net. I'll PM you with the contact info for Mike and Dotty aboard Cool Beans.

Over? Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

I don't care if it holds or not, that Vulcan anchor is the coolest looking anchor out there.
Who knew space ships carried anchors?

If it fits I definitely suggest getting one. I am very impressed with the setting abilities of the Vulcan in GOM bottom conditions.

Give the Ultra credit where it's due.

The same attackers shelled Sydney from sea, attacked ships in Sydney Harbor using mini submarines, and bombed Darwin (in northern Australia) multiple times. Sidesplitting humor!
