Al, my knock-off Bruce anchors have always secured on the first attempt and survived 2.5-knot 180-degree tidal changes several times a day in the San Francisco Bay/Delta/Estuary.

A Bruce anchor successfully held a Christmas wreath on the bow of our boat this season through three gales and two storms.

Surprised it held with that steep a scope.

Really like the blue color of your hull! Definitely an eye catcher.

Love it, NS! Is that the first we've seen this fine vessel?

I think the Bruce could have handled a MUCH bigger wreath!

There are pictures under my profile.

But you are right, no one pointed and laughed at the wreath, so I probably could go a size or two higher.
