Re: Anyone with Manson Supreme?

Dear Thor,

We have the 35lb Manson Supreme on our PSC 37 bow roller with a danforth tipped sideways on the other roller. The two "play well together" and the Manson supreme is simply supreme. The West/Yachtworld anchor test showed it held to 5,000 lbs on a 5:1 scope in 2 of three locations, no idea why not in the other. Usually the only problem is getting it out! We dragged only once when it was blowing 45 knots sustained and I neglected to factor in the height of the waves (breaking over our bow in our quote protected unquote anchorage). In 8 feet of water a five foot wave alters the geometry significantly -- as I learned the hard (but not too hard) way.

A great anchor in my opinion.

Jay
