THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKIN' 'BOUT !!!!!

AND.....

on top of that, I visited the MANSON ANCHOR Booth at the MIAMI INTERNATIONAL BOAT SHOW and had several MANSON people there discussing (for quite a long time) their anchors, and ONLY their anchors !..............not once did they ever mention any competitors......
giving excellant info about all aspects of good "anchoring"!

I WAS IMPRESSED !

My MANSON SUPREME is the BEST anchor I've ever owned........
I'm sure there are others equally good, but I like these "new generation" anchors..
I think they're on to something......

That's the way to do it. I hope many other companies, not just anchor companies at that, cotton onto the fact that most of the buyers out there want it that way.

Hmm, makes me wish I had have copied a Supreme and not the........oops that's naughty of me. I'll smack the back of my hand now.

Wow, you found an anchor booth for Manson at the Miami show. The only anchors I really saw there represented were Fortress. Sorry I missed that one.

I just ordered a 60# Manson supreme. A lot less money and 5# more than a comparable Rocna, and I doubt if the anchor testing did enough testing to even hint at a real difference between the two.
I lost trust in my 45# Delta after dragging twice in one day of three consecutive storms from different directions. It reset both times, and fortunately there wasn't anybody else in the area. There was 35 kt wind and I saw gusts to 43. The CG measured 59.5 about 10 miles away. I had about 8:1 scope, all 3/8" chain, and it was a good sandy bottom.
After dragging (about a hundred feet) the second time I put out 40 more feet of chain to act as a kellet, but by then it had already reset and the wind had diminished. I had already been through two smaller storms two days earlier without problems.

You'll find a 60# Supreme will be a massive sleep assisting pleasure device after a 45 Delta. In a good bottom you'll now have probably twice the holding load, at least.

Let us know what you think of your new beast.

Thanks.
Fortunately it didn't drag (except in my imagination) last weekend in a very crowded anchorage in Newport, RI. It was especially crowded because of the folk festival (including a finale with Jimmy Buffet). Many boats dragged during an afternoon thunderstorm, including a raft-up of 6 powerboats.
