First time using our Mantus Anchor

We used our 35# Mantus on our Catalina 320 for the first time Saturday night. Mid texture grey Chessy mud (As oppossed to the black soupy variety). She dug in instantly, I hit throttled up in reverse just to make sure, it didn't budge. Thinking we'll probably have a heck of a time raising it I was pleasently surprised that after we over ran it she came right up and dumped all the mud out of the spade on the way up (Very happy with that), there was only a little mud on the ring! We are very happy with it.
