Deltas are great!

Hi, All this talk about favorite anchors really makes me laugh. I think they''re all good,it''s the anchoring techniques some of us use that''s lacking. On my last 2 boats I''ve had 35# CQR,35# Delta & 11#(?)Fortress. They all held,every time,once I learned the correct technique.I''ve sailed to Bermuda,the ICW several times & L.I. to Key West& back.Never had a problem.Try practicing hand setting, using very little power to try setting the anchor.You''ll be able to feel the anchor take hold. Let it work its way in naturally. So far it seems to work for me. Marc
