Not to be rude, but there are a lot of threads existing that would take hours to read, and would provide an excellent education in anchoring
, that might have been read first. So in addition to this thread look around.
My own take is that the Manson Supreme, Rocna
, Beugel, and Spade are all in a category well above the older designs, and have been around long enough to prove themselves. The Ultra is a relatively new entrant but shares design concepts with these, and would be a good choice as well. Unfortunately it is only available in stainless steel
(OK, it would be eye-catching on the bow...).
I am guessing that yours is a Turkish name, and perhaps you will visit Turkey
before going cruising? You can get Beugel copies (and originals) at a good price
there. Also the Ultra anchors are made there. Either would make a great souvenir - too bad about the increasingly restrictive baggage allowances. I would use just about any excuse to go back to Turkey
