Supreme?
So now I can join a club and be cool too.
HC do you really think I need nore anchors? Wait till I tel my wife.
If you need chain you have an inferior anchor .. not Supreme.
Keith actually that poster probably couldn't fit the Rocky on his bow.
Oliver there are several anchor tests where the Rocky did'nt come out on top.

"Club Supreme"

Yes, has a nice ring to it.

Never seen a used Supreme anchor for sale either.

Kevin, seeing the dock pic of your Excel on the boat, people either have to walk around it or get physically stopped by it.
My Super Sarca did a great job last night, in 13M, despite a number of direction changes. It is doing well.

Eric you may be the exception, no more anchors for you. As you pointed out, the guy selling the Rocna is doing so because it doesn't fit on his anchor roller very well. This is often a problem with roll bar anchors. I asked Cardude to send me a picture of where he was going to hang the Rocna before I delivered it to him. They don't work well if the shank has to come up through a pulpit. I can't use a Rocna because my anchor comes through the Pulpit. I'm going to give a Vulcan a try. The Vulcan gets extra points because it just looks so damn cool.

A dock neighbor had his boat painted over the winter... and he's been re-installing bling. Re-chromed his horns, etc...

So the other day he's complaining about his new anchor, at quick glance looked like a Delta, to me... but he said it's a 60-pounder and it didn't look like that big. Anyway, his complaint is two-fold: it's too large for his pulpit slot, and it's ugly (translate = not blingy).

So he's taking that back and he's now ordered an Ultra, smaller to fit his pulpit.

He has no clue about various anchor designs, no clue about anchoring geometry, he thinks Danforth-style anchors are called "wing anchors"... he ordered the Ultra because it's stainless. And because they look so good on the Fleming fleet we have here.

Bling.

And he admits he has no intention of intentionally anchoring anywhere.

Thanks for all the anchor fun over the weekend guys.

I hope everybody that reads this thread takes it as the light hearted humor the participants intended it to be.

+1 on that

So, given that I don't have a dog or horse in this race, I'll again offer the lobby of our local police station as a safe venue for discussing the subject of the best anchor.

I recently changed the label on my anchor to "Rocna". It holds much better now.
