I like to sleep at night so when I purchased my new anchor 8 months ago I went for BIG. Someone said kept going up in size until everyone stops laughing. Anyway I purchased a Rocna
33gk (73lbs). I love it in that it sets first time every time and once down I stay put no matter what it blows. However the only issue is that it just doesn't fit the Lipari
The shank is very long and when coming up unless I put a foot on the chain it bashes into the top of the anchor locker
just where it enters the boat, and often will come up the wrong way around meaning I have to reach down through the tramp and turn it. The other issue is when up the roll bar pushes up onto the bottom of the trampoline and has started to chafe the tramp. I don't have the bow sprit but imagine it would not fit with the bow sprit either.
I still love the holding power of this thing but wanted a better solution. I have just purchased a Rocna Vulcan 33kg. Same holding power that I can tell and it solves most of the issues I have. No roll bar so the tramp isn't impacted, the new curved shank means it doesn't bash the deck
on the way up and the curve also means it can't come up the wrong way. Happy days.
I certainly don't want to start anchor wars but if you have a FP and looking to change anchors these are a nice fit
Anyone want to buy a standard Rocna 33? Bit big for a spare
