goboatingnow The manson and the rocna are similar but different manufacturers

Rockter Apparently the anchor is also known as a Rocna, or something like that.
It's all jolly confusing.

Valiente That second video's "trick ending" gave me a bad moment...until I thought about it...

Rockter It looks a decent anchor, if it can hold in that it is doing well.

When in Maine, put a main sail up first, I suppose.

a lonely place....

He trusts that anchor tackle....

YouTube - windy anchorage

....but it will be lonely, and daunting, when the light fails.

I have never had to cope with 70 kt when at anchor, or even near so.

The anchor is the Supreme...

Manson Supreme Anchor - TheMainSail Product news

...and he has confidence in it.

Here he is again, this time with a drogue out....

YouTube - The drogue saves the day
