Yet another anchor question. Has anyone seen/used an Oceane anchor?
 
I bought two 38# Oceane anchors today from WM for $78.08ea today. Compared to my old 22# claws, these things are monsters. They are a bit ugly, but seem tom hold fine. My reason for buying new anchors is someone ran over one of my anchor lines a few weeks back and i lost one of my claws.

I couldn't find much good info on them. Anyone know anything about them, or maybe use one?

Here is a picture of one.

The Oceane is basically an economy version of the Spade with fewer features and less robust construction and performance from what I've seen.

The Oceane was as described by SD. It has now been re-branded as the "Sword", its third (that I know of) name change. Any Oceanes still around are very old stock and the design is very slightly different.

It doesn't perform nearly as well as the Spade, but is okay for small boats.
