"The Price is Right" anchor

Greetings all. I have a lightly used Delta 44 anchor free to a good home. Self deploying- she's just not good at "self re- setting". Local pick up in Gulfport only- preferably before Tuesday afternoon.

Recipient needs to be a participating TF member with at least 30 posts!

I like my Delta, though not the best in mud.

I'm interested in what the problem was that causes you to say it was not good at resetting. Having anchored with a Delta a few hundred nights, most of them in clocking currents and/or winds, I find "resetting" to be one of its better attributes:

I also have a Delta 44 but I must have the self re-setting model.

Sorry guys. I didn't intend for it to come out like it did.
Let me say that my rode set up, on our boat, with the Delta 44- was not a good fit. My intention here was not to knock the anchor so much - just wanted to explain why I'm giving a perfectly good anchor I paid over $250 for not very long ago. The anchor is fine. I probably needed a size up given the windage a sundeck has. And as I recall- I mounted my swivel SF the line/ chain splice. Wong?? Probably.
Remember the West dink I gave away? Same deal here. I just want it to go to a good home. Preferably today. I sweetened the pot- today only to a participating member...
A free bottle opener!
Hurry before this sale ends!!Click image for larger version

Alan. I know. I'm stunned. Hell- till about two years ago the purchase of cabin bulbs sometimes had to be planned on my budget. You would have awoken to me tapping on the boat. With Community Coffee of course .
I really am puzzled.... I thought of PMing a buddy far away like Phil in Washington State to see if this was actually showing up on other computers on the WWW!!!

I actually posted it late Sunday night- to give us old fixed income folks the best shot . The working folks shouldn't have time to surf the web on Monday morning...

Hay, I want that anchor. I am only a couple miles away and I have a sister ship to yours. I could use another storm anchor! When do you leave for the Pacific Northwest?

Would you split the pair? I'm not interested in that POC anchor.

I'm seriously interested in the bottle opener, but you'd have to be willing to ship it. I'm willing to pay shipping. Deal????

I think that Delta would make a good tandum in front of a CQR.

See that pic I posted? That's a mud bottom. A thunderstorm is what caused the big shift and when the winds died down to the prevailing 10's, we returned to the circle caused by the 4 times daily current shift.

There is the problem !!!!

A burring anchor like a CQR needs a firm bottom to dig into.
It has very little fluke area.

A Danforth style with bigger area to drag thru the mud would probably be a better choice in soft goop.
