That seems a pretty big anchor for an Alberg 35.
Wow, I'll say... Especially on a design with such long overhangs, and so little tolerance for placing additional weight at the ends of the boat...

Says me, who carries a 45 lb Manson and a 33 lb Bruce on the bow of a 30-footer :-)

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

As I have posted any number of times, I believe that an oversized anchor is important. Plugging the boat data into the Mantus selection page, I come up with the 45# but I always go one size larger than recommended. I can say truthfully that I have never had an anchor slip once set and would like it to stay that way. I've been anchored through tropical storms and big blows and have never had a problem, even with my antique CQR But the consensus is that these new generation anchors are much better so I'll bite but would not give up on pure, basic MASS as an important element.

Mantus have sent me an anchor to test. It is still early days with about 50 nights at anchor so far.

I dive and inspect my anchor underwater quite carefully (and did the same with my previous Rocna, which I had for five years). The Mantus so far has been very impressive. Its stability when rotating around to a new wind direction and performance at short scope has been particularly excellent.

It you are concerned about bending, it is worth looking at the warranty anchor manufacturers offer. Most companies proudly state a lifetime warranty, but exclude deformation.
Mantus, Fortress, Rocna, Ultra and Anchor Right are the only manufacturers that cover you if you get your anchor stuck under a rock and bend it. Mantus go a bit further and include free shipping.

It's also important to keep in mind that a "lifetime warranty" should be thought of in terms of the lifetime of the company, not you. Not to pick on Mantus, but they're only two years old. I appreciate their warranty terms but only time will tell if they're around to back it up when necessary. Same goes for the others.

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

I think I'm going to pick up a Mantus 45 to replace the (rusty, undersized) Danforth that came with my 1980 36' Hunter.

Now if only I could find somewhere in Canada to pick one up from, ordering from the US comes to over 250 bucks just for S+H :<

See if you can find a Rocna or Manson they probably are cheaper and hold just as well. I have a Rocna and Manson and cant tell any difference
