Mantus Bridle |

I carry 5 anchors already. 6 ???

I think a 1" bridle for our 58 foot, 55,000 disp would be in order.

I suggest they add a new product - galvanized swivel forerunner with kenter shackle as a superior terminal swivel for chain to anchor.

And for me.

Buying one anyway, but the $330 subsidy is hard to beat.

Re: February CF Giveaway - Win a Mantus Anchor!

Having sailed since I was 8 years old, Then joining the elite USCG as a navigator, (QuarterMaster) and retiring from the USCG in 1996. I have had the opportunity to sail on hundreds of boats. I have use just about every anchor on the market. Danforth, CQR, Bruce, etc... All have their pros and conns depending on your cruising area. The Mantus anchor is in a class of new technology.

Anchor snubbers/bridals are cruicial part of an anchoring system, as you do not want your anchor windlass holding the load.

Check out the latest technology @ Why the Mantus? | MantusAnchors and the snubber/bridal @ http://mantusanchors.com/mantus-bridle/

I would benefit, in my cruising with any of the Mantus products to out fir my S2 11.0 C sloop.

25 lbs Galvanized Steel Mantus Anchor -

I consider anchors to be almost more important than any other part of the boat, except the hull. Of course, without a good anchor the hull would be lost.

Surprise gales have left me searching for the best anchor I can get. Currently using rocna but I was very disappointed to have it arrive "made in China" after all the BS I had read about it when researching. I waited too long before ordering and they changed their supplier.

I like the looks of the Mantus, and the videos are much more honest looking than the rocna videos.
