60' boat
~65,000 lbs loaded


I had a Danforth anchor that supposedly was plenty big for the boat but found it difficult to set in the river when the bottom was river rock (smooth rocks) and near impossible to set when over a river bottom full of grasses.


I went to an 88lb Delta Fast Set plow anchor. Sets first time, every time.

Boat 50', 52,000 lbs.

Anchor 85 lb Mantus, 260' chain, 200' line.

Originally the boat came with an 88 lb Bruce but it dragged a few times in a blow. Never had an issue once I updated to the Mantus.

Hi Lynn !
As a famous sailor/ motorboater 4 revs round the world (2.5 in sailboat, 1,5 in motorboat)once sad: ”when poeple start laugh at you in the harbor becuse of your big anchor, you are very close”
He ment you can never get to big.
I have 40 kg Delta on my Mainship 400 here in Scandinavia and I’m happy about it.
Good luck !

Boat - 30foot, 14000 lbs
36 lb Marsh stockless type anchor.
100 feet 5/16" chain; 200 feet line.

The boat originally came with a 30 pound CQR, but it wasn't designed for weedy limestone bottoms. I may use it if I ever anchor in mud.

As you can see they don’t have a wide fluke so they wouldn’t do well in soft mud. They still hold well in sand around here as the limestone is often just below.

Fear not. It will do you well, yer bugger...

Sorry, reading the Dark Tower (finally) and the lingo gets ta yah.

I have a boat that on the slings weighs 11 tonne = 11,000kg = 24,000lbs, and a Super Sarca of 22kg = 45lbs, and it is literally a drop and forget type anchor. I feel a bit lonely actually. Anyone else got a Super Sarca..?
