Re: Those new fangled Mantus Anchors..Bought One...Why
Does anyone have any experience with using a Mantus as a storm anchor? I've been planning to purchase a large Fortress (probably a FX-37, but possible a FX-55), but am now considering a large Mantus (probably the 85lb).
I like the new spade-style anchors (my bower is a 55lb Rocna), for their holding power, their ease of setting, and their versatility. I used to routinely switch between a danforth and a CQR, depending on bottom conditions. The Rocna seems to handle it all fairly well.
I expect the Mantus will be similar, hence my interest. That said, the Fortress I am looking at will generate more holding power, and will be lighter.
Why go fast, when you can go slow.
