It is an inflatable? It may help you pop your dinghy.

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

This weekend we went out on my parents powerboat and anchored with his new 105lb Mantus. The holding is superb (thick mud/sand mix) where we anchored and he dropped the anchor while moving forward at 1.5knots. Once he had 1.9:1 scope out (less than 2:1) he backed up and it immediately set. He then let out more chain for a total of 5:1 for the night.

I continue to be impressed at the short scope setting abilities of this anchor. It makes me want one for a stern anchor as when I do use them, I never seem to have enough scope on them.

That's exactly what I found with Mantus - incredible customer service. Good on 'em.

Just got told they have no more stock left for the year. Great.

If anyone knows any other Canadian supplier please let me know

Just ordered the 45lb anchor for just 10 bucks shipping. Yeah!

I'm gonna stick that on 50' of 5/16" G4 chain and I'll feel pretty safe )

Impressive. Does it disassemble? Looked like you just pop the fluke in and slide it down similar to putting together a bed frame?

How about splitting the tie this way. All new-gen anchors are ugly, imo. Rocna is the least ugly, Mantus is the most ugly.
Ugliness is in the eye of the beholder. I have two ugly anchors then. hidden by them benieath the water where the beauty really lies......
