New anchor comparison - results

Hi

a new anchor performance comparison has been published.

i'm not on sailnet as much as i used to be, but i didnt see a reference to this latest anchor comparison from PBO so i thought i'd mention it and send a link. I hope it hasnt already been reviewed here - apologies if it has - i couldnt find it.

Rocna, spade, manson supreme, bruce, delta, CQR compared. wish they had also looked at fortress.

see scans at picassa link:

https://picasaweb.google.com/1117065...K__oo2m2I2R1wE

it suffers from the usual problems of methodology that these tests have (different anchor weights, scope not entirely realistic, bottom characteristics, not all characteristics of a good anchor tested), but it is an extra data point and seems to generally confirm prior tests and impressions: new technologies great, delta ok, CQR sucks.

i have had a 20 kg Rocna on a Hanse 370e for the past 3 years and its been better than anything else i've used on my boats or in charters.
