That's a great price.

I pay $10 to $20 for mine on eBay. I wear size 3 (kids) so can get the $60 Angelfish for dirt cheap. Kids only break 'em in. I wear 'em out. Life is good if you have small feet, except when I want to pretend I'm an adult, i.e. wear heels. Then, well, then it's not so easy.

If you need marine parts with good service on the East Coast of US, Parks is the man. If you want to belong to an exclusive anchor club get a Sarca ExCel. Sorry, Rocna guys they are just sooooo, shall we say, common.

I've made several purchases from Parks and will tell you he provides excellent service on the West Coast of the US.

Yes, Almost ordinary, or plain Jane.

Now the SARCA EXCEL, thats the club to be in. People stop by your boat and ask about your anchor. Conversations start. Yes, a very exclusive club indeed.

When people ask, I mention the Rocna anchor, Yes they've see one. I then tell them that the Sarca Excel is for those that want something more... An upgrade if you will.

Yeah, and you know, the guy knows how to entertain. After picking up Bill's anchor, he had us as guest judges at the Miss H-C Beauty Pageant!

I knew there would be trouble letting Larry have a photo.
My wife's comment when she saw the photo was a long cold "Ohhhh, explain".
I quickly blamed it on Larry and told her the girls weren't really there. Not sure she believes me.

The HopCar logo on the bathing suits is a nice touch Larry.

KS, OK, you have joined my list of suspects, and you made a profit. Shame on you. And, BTW, I have a Supreme, and now I know to expect that kind of behavior from Rocna/Excel deviants.

Sorry, LMAO.

It's funny, because it's a fact that Rocna's are THEE best. That's it, period.





What's all this debate about?!

No debate, Oliver. "If you don't want to anchor wrong, join Club Anchor Right".

I just saw a post advertisiing a Rocna in the classifieds.

Looking to possibly trade for a larger anchor.

Funny how he is not looking to trade for another ROCNA.

Wonder why????

Never seen a used SARCA EXCEL for sale.

Club Anchor Right seems to be a club you join once and never leave.

Club anchor ROCNA seems to have a bit of turnover.
