Delta anchors

...anchors. A friend of mine who owns a 55 Symbol was wondering why the sticker on the top of his new 80(?) pound Delta anchor, was wearing out. He got his answer as he recently anchored at Wallace Island and could see something shiny. It turns out his anchor had settled itself into the mud upside down with the flukes uppermost. He tried resetting it and if it didn't land perfectly, it repeated the upside down performance. If you have a Delta, try it. It settles in pretty good and if you don't really load it to set it, it 'feels' set. I'll try and attach a photo.
