Re: Question regarding Rocna Anchor's Roll Bar

Even with a manual windlass I use the method Mainesail eennumerated to break ours free to as thes suckers really bury themselves. If I am anchoring in an area I worry about logs, rocks, or think someone may run it over etc I do put a float on her through the c hole. In switching tides sometimes I use a kellet ( 10 lb mushroom anchor) also.

Last year I stuck the anchor in a 2 foot square of rebar when anchoring and had a hell of a time getting it up...when it surfaced these was a gasp in the anchorage as 50 lbs of iron came up with my anchor.
