The rest of the info in the ID block is just as good...

It's about time ... either a new sheriff or at least a great deputy needs to be here a little more often...

Well...he probably figured you are being too soft on me and like Batman....a few sequels never hurt anyone....

Be careful of some of the posters here...sock puppet means a whole 'nother thing to them....

God I hope so! Without Marin castigating, Walt knitting and RickB banished to the hinterland, this site is too darned vanilla.

Now about Rocnas, what is the point in getting one two sizes up from recommended? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of their presumed superior design?

Anyone use rockna with that top hoop on a pulpit where the anchor pulls up against the bottom of the pulpit?

Is there an appeal process to reincarnate the dead and some voodoo to bring back all time fave's?

Because it just makes them, or any anchor you choose, more superior.

Plus you sleep better at night at anchor.

Of course, a bigger anchor is better. But the whole game played by the modern anchors is superior holding strength with modern design trumps weight. WTH, I'll just stick with my big Bruce until it finally finds a bottom it wants to drag over. Then I'll buy a 50% heavier Rocna and extol its holding power.

We need to keep our new mystery poster out of the WANNABEES thread. It is not what he thinks it might be.

Not a true pulpit, but a guy on the Defever Forum has nearly the same bow roller on his 44 as mine and says the 88-lb Rocna fits like it was designed for it. I went with an 80-lb Manson Supreme, installed today. It's snug, but it fits.

Well they could be right. In that a smaller X, Y or Z modern style anchor can match or beat the holding power of a heavier old style anchor. But a heavy model of either anchor should hold to a higher point and perhaps hold better in a bottom condition that is less than ideal for its type. So it's up a size or two for me because I just want to sleep well at anchor.

Is you Bruce a genuine one, or a copy? Is it over sized at all?

The Bruce is genuine and right sized. Has worked fine with gale force winds, all chain and snubber. If I ever replace it a 50% heavier Manson would be the choice but to date the Bruce has been a good holder in the PNW from pure sand to boulders. Lots of drops and as the galvanizing wears thinner replacement day will occur in a few years.

As pursued tirelessly by Delfin, the finding of bad metal used in some of the Rocnas turns me away from them no matter what the salesman says.
