Really, I'm trying to get info on a particular anchor, not general advice on ground tackle.
I'd love to try one, but w/ 5 complete set ups onboard $1500.00 is a whole lot of cash to find out if they work better for me on the flat coral
bottoms like Admiralty Bay in Bequia?.
But if I would have to destroy the Rocna
through misuse, rather than have it fail of it's own accord is the question I'm asking of someone who had theirs fail.
This is an 88 pound anchor & it's really HUGE, as it's made from much lighter steel than my CQR
. But everyone maintains they hold better.
So take a chance on a $1500 anchor for $200 on the maybe, that some day it might bend, which, since I'm normally aboard, especially in inclement weather
, would at worst necessitate dropping a second anchor.
Can anybody definitively say that all the anchors of that series were bad or did some owners just go for a new anchor when offered?
