Super Sarca Anchor #7

For Sale: #7 Super Sarca anchor. 55 lbs. one year old.

Located in Clear Lake Texas $400.00 plus actual shipping cost.

Link to manufacture's detail of the anchor. Super SARCA Anchor No 7 - Galvanised Anchors - anchorright.com.au

We have sold our trawler and the new owner (an older gentlemen) does not believe in new generation anchors and will be bringing his own anchor to Walkabout so we negotiated the deal less anchor, therefore it is for sale.

The anchor is in excellent condition but it has been wet before and may have scratches due to normal use.

New owner must be a man after FF's heart.

Sorry, that was naughty, but couldn't resist. Dying to know what this magnificent anchor the elderly gentleman is bring over with him is. Please advise when you know.

On the upside, if any of you in the area near Ready2Go are thinking of a new anchor and have a boat 40' to 50', I'd suggest you grab it asap...

Declaration of bias - I own a #6 Super Sarca, and wouldn't use any other...and if I was buying another boat, and it was the correct size for it, I'b be taking my anchor out of the deal.

Less chance of it but would be more interesting if he was downsizing.

Still think that SARCA would be the best anchor if only one was onboard. Haven't thought of any mods for it though.

How do you think it will fit in an enclosed anchor roller platform? The price sounds about right.
Thanks,
Fred

There is/was oval shaped rings that can be lowered down the rode and with repositioning of the boat pull the andhor up by the fluke end of the shank. Probably quite inexpensive.

He has a 66 lb Lewmar claw (Bruce Knock off).

Not retiring, just down sizing. Sold the "big" boat and looking at a 28 and 29 footer, also buying a motorhome and will split our time between the two.

Not sure. Below is a pic of how it sits on our anchor roller.

He's losing a Super Sarca to make way for a Claw/Bruce knock-off.

Marin, where are you..?

He spent months at anchor in the Fl keys, so I hope he responds. No stress on dragging stories on his blog.

We better remember this is a for sale thread guys, so not to move it too far away from its intent. I have mentally smacked my own hand here as well...

I am very pleased with it. If it was the right size for my next boat you would have to pry it from my cold dead fingers, but it looks like the next boat will be a 28 footer with no windless.

I have only had it drag once and I can't really blame the anchor for that. I was in a very tight anchorage with literally 2:1 scope in soupy mud and the wind picked up to over 30. That is expecting alot from an anchor. We pulled it up and dropped our FX37 and set up the rest of the night, then left at first light.

We have used the Sarca many times in sand, mud, and soupy mud. It does well even in the soup with enough scope.

READY,
I just bought a capstan at a very attractive price from Endurance of Surrey BC. Same basically as my old capstan but MUCH improved. No lack of power w a planetary reduction and 1.5hp.15lbs.

Perhaps I should test it before I recommend it. Later

Way to go Eric. Pity Ready2Go's anchor is a weeee bit big for your ship, or here would be a chance to nab one.

Back on topic...No 7 (55lb) Super Sarca for sale...see above..!

You are right Mike. I was just trying to give a discrete thread bump.
