Well at least keep the FOB and Delta as secondary anchors. Sounds like Excel, Rocna, Spade are all an improvement, and I will see what is available in Grenada when I return there.
It is always nice to have a few spare anchors ready to deploy. After using a Delta and plowing furrows in a crowded New Harbor, Block Island with a borrowed 45' Freedom on the afternoon of July 4th, I dug through the lockers and found a Fortress. It set immediately in the soft mud. In Boston Harbor I have anchored to ride out a squall before returning to the yacht club, and with my Fortress anchor set in the mud with better than 7:1 scope watched as a boat dragged past me with its mooring ball.
