Re: Another "Next Generation" anchor enters the market...

This is an excerpt from the Blog of a cruiser who rode out SANDY while anchored on the Mantus Anchor

"The primary anchor, the Mantus, did very well. It didn't budge much at all, just enough for it to dig in so deep that the very top of the rollbar was 6 inches below the surface, which I believe was only about 2 feet of drag. The in tandum anchor chain still had its 10+ feet of slack so that means the Mantus never dragged. It did rotate when the winds rotated as it was pointing 120 degrees different direction from how it was set. All in all, it passed a very tough test. 70 knots gusting to 80 knots and it didn't drag but 2 feet....awesome! I just might have to see if I can get Captain to make this my primary anchor instead of the Bulwagga. I'm pretty sure the Bulwagga would have dragged a bit more under those conditions." For the full write up you could visit the blog Dreamboat and it's crazy Captain: Riding out Hurricane Sandy

That looks like high praise indeed. I'd like to know what the boat was as well as the size of the anchor used.

Edit: found the boat - Hunter 376 - at the beginning of the blog but nothing about the anchor size, only the chain & rode.

Hello fellows. Heard there was a question about my anchor over here. My first time on this site...seems like a pretty good site. Hard to keep up with which site is the not trend these days. Some may know me from my days on SailboatOwners site but it got old so I stopped posting...although I did learn a lot from that site and I thank all who have helped me.

Anyway, to the question of size, it's the 45 lb anchor. I remember when I was getting it before leaving Kemah and I thought I was getting the next size up as most anchor companies don't give a proper size...they say up to 30 knots. Well, most boats that really use an anchor are going to get more than 30 knots. Anyway, because of that I normally get the next size up and thought I was with the Mantus, but it turns out, according to their website, it's the "right" size for my boat, a Hunter 376 (37') with a displacement of 8 tons but maybe close to 8.5 or 9 with all my stuff on it. The anchor though is the same size as my Bulwagga and I remember that being a one size up. I do love my Bulwagga but I do believe the Mantus holds better and so far it's been perfect in it's setting ability.

I have to admit, I was really impressed by it this past weekend. I kept checking the compass headings during the storm and was amazed it wasn't changing. I knew I had the Bulwagga in tandum if it started to drag and with the two there should be no way I would have a problem, but for the Mantus to handle the worst part of the storm all by itself, all I can say is wow.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me by email. Those who know me, know I am very open and honest about everything, even making fun of my mistakes...and I do make a lot of mistakes

Well, I'm off to getting the boat ready for sailing again. Heading to the Cays one last week before I head to Nassau and then George Town (it's getting a little cold here).
