Used anchors..... ie Rocnas

I knew I had to put Rocna in the title to get you to read it !!

I've often looked for a good supplier for used anchors and never found one with much good inventory. I suspect that shipping costs and the fact that most of us just put our old anchors into our collection is the problem.

However, I got to thinking that many may be ditching their Rocnas now and that may include the Canadian or Pre-China anchors. Personally, I would have no problem with one of these at a used price.

So, is anyone familiar with a used market for anchors that is blossoming? I'm up for a Canadian Rocna 40. Maybe I should contact WM to see what they are doing with the returns.

Disclaimer.... not trying to start a new Rocna thread.... this is about the "pre-china" product.

Helluva good idea! I'd go with a decent enough used anchor if the price was right.... no matter who made it. Any anchor in decent condition would be good enough for my old girl.

I suspect anyone with Canadian or NZ Rocna anchors has a pretty good grip on their value and won't sell except at a premium. You would have to offer a lot for either my Canadian 25 or NZ Stowable 25.

Here in Newport Beach, CA We have a store called Minney's. They carry a ton of used (and new, discounted) anchors, all look to be in pretty good shape. Don't think I've ever seen a Rocna in there though.

MINNEY'S YACHT SURPLUS - WE MAKE BOATING AFFORDABLE

I'm guessing shipping costs would kill any benefit you'd get from buying used though. There must be a place like that around you. You could also try Craigslist I guess.

Yeah, you'd have to pry our Canadian built Rocna from my dead fingers... Despite how horrible the company is our "original" Rocna is still a hell of a hook. I suspect it may have gone up in value... The Manson Supreme is also one hell of a hook too and mine might be on the bow today if it was not one size too small.

The only thing I don't like about our Rocna is advertising for them when it is on the roller.

I do hide it in the anchor locker though when not in use...

I had great luck on craigslist recently - a 60 # CQR for under $300. It can take awhile, but I'd keep an eye on their boats column. As long as we're trading great secondhand resources, the Blue Pelican in Alameda, CA is a marine consignment chandlery that often has incredible deals.

Thanks. I've peaked there before. Not a huge inventory online, but suspect they may have more in the store. Mostly smaller anchors too. I'm sure many would love to point out the disproportionate number of CQRs for sale. I have one, so I'm going to try to ignore that.
