Re: Those new fangled Mantus Anchors..Bought One...Why

I too bought one to take as a spare as I have a 20kg New Zealand Rocna on the bow already. Construction looks robust. To me very sim ilar to the Rocna and Manson so I would expect it to hold as well, not betterm but as well which would be great. I have found that the Rocna does much better in sand and mud than the Danforth I had and I amore confident it would reset if it had to I will be taking it on our trips offshore. It will also fit easily in our huge anchor locker.

To solve the pounted tip I took an old tennis ball and slitted it and pull it over it so it wouldnt damage anything.
