In your picture the boat hull looks very very much like an Albin.

We have a Rocna 33 (73#) on Blue Sky (35,000#Nordic Tug 42) and have cruised for 5 faultless years with it. Blue Sky came to us with a badly bent claw that was quickly dispensed with; we also replaced the 400' of corroded 3/8'" chain with new, again 400'.

Our previous experience with Rocna had been on a 12,000# Ennos Sapphire; we put a Rocna 15 on it (can't remember the weight, but probably around 35#).

The Ennos came with a Danforth which was okay, but over the years prior to the Ennos we'd experienced more dragging and fouled Danforths than I care to remember.

Our first Rocna was one of the much disparaged early Chinese versions but we never had a hint of a problem with it.

Both Rocnas we've owned have set phenomenally well and have never dragged.

Our cruising area is primarily Desolation Sound and the Broughtons.

I had a Vulcan on my President 385 Sundeck. Great anchor, sets within a few metres. Attention that you don't go too fast backwards otherwise you will find yourself with no windlass.

You'll love that Rocna. Our 55kg is a beast and only needs 2-4' to set. They're great anchors.
