I was all ready to buy a Rocna when I got my current boat. But right when I about to do it Craig Smith was working overtime trash posting on forums and that resulted in my getting a 60 lb Manson Supreme instead because I decided I wasn't to support such an a-hole.

Back on topic, my production boat has been happy with a Manson Supreme and has had no limits to its use..

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

At the risk of screwing this thread completely by starting to talk anchors....

We looked at Rocna, Mantus and Manson Supreme all very similar anchors design wise.
We choose Mantus. Now if you look with an open mind at the actual engineering of the Mantus you will be impressed.

But hey if bolts freak you out, your superstitious, or you like to choose anchors based on something some guy told you once in a bar then thats ok too.

As for customer service/support Mantus were fantastic. Greg got back to me straight away with answers and the local distributor here in Australia have gone out of their way to make sure we are happy. Really good folk.

As for Rocna? Well I emailed them as well and also mentioned vaguely that I had been discussing anchors in forums and reading what people were using on blogs and I received an arrogant, sarcastic reply decrying the internet and also informing me that if I was fishing for a discount for a review I could get stuffed, and that all there was to know about their anchors was available on their website and basically I would be best to go annoy someone in a chandlery somewhere (This last statement is more my interpretation, not their actual words).

So I bought an Mantus and I have supported a couple of small businesses( one in the US and one here) ran by really nice people.

They call it "next generation" anyway. I don't know why though.

Rocna, unless there is a good reason for a take-apart anchor.

Great looking boat.

Whack a Mantus on that bow roller and you'll be set to go.
