There you are Marin. I thought you were on assignment again as your PM seems turned off.

I don't think that guy is any smarter than the rest of us and if he is that would mean the rest of us (a clear majority) aren't so smart. Agreed on one thing though that that anchor does very well in most of the anchor tests.

I turned it off some time ago.

Your words, not mine.

Any friend of a Rocna is a friend of mine.

That said I just picked up two of these for the boat I'm running now. Used 80 kg. Ultras with #16 Ultra swivels on both.

Anybody want to buy one or two used polished SS swiveling shank CQR style 60 kg. anchors?

That pic of the Bruce and the CQR.
I'd reverse them.
The Bruce is designed for short link to rigs.

Let the CQR bite first then Bruce will set if req'd. (Or you drive them in.)
and always keep short chain /rope if you have Bruce nearest to boat.
I've had them. Don't now for yachts.

Personally.
I use CQr/Plough for preference to port with smaller to Stbd as secondary that I can swivel link to chain of first pick and swing on them.
Simple after you've done it a coupla times, like leaving boat in strange harbour for a while.

I also always have a BIG Admiralty pick with oversize time blades as an emergency anchor on deck.
They always dig in and the only one I'll normally go to sleep on in strange waters.
(normally sailed by myself).

I have/had steel offshore yachts.
Once you've tapped a container you will too.
I could put my fist in the dent. but NO leaking (34ft. 6mm plate. 8mm Keel sides)
We get a few around Australia.
nearly all shipping routes once you get clear of coast.

And a well set in anchor??.
Some of us are divers. ALWAYS check set b4 relaxing.

Best we ever found were the Plough type.
Several ft of chain and anchor down in the mud or sand
took some digging out at times.
