Would like to find an average bottom to do some "setting" .. does sound like work though.
Eric, small but important point of order…but I made no remark about the set percentage of the Danforth, but did you really mean it only sets about once in a 100 tries..? That sounds a bit harsh, even for a Danforth. I had one on my yacht, and it did better than that, but did not do well when a fluke tip picked up a shell, plastic bag, tin can, or other rubbish on the bottom.
Also, I too am very interested to hear how your bar-less Manson Supreme sets sans roll bar.
