Well....if you don't mind may I offer my thoughts? Im a researcher. I'm one that needs to dig deep on info to get piece of mind. I was THIS close to purchasing
the new Manson Boss. I read something that changed my mind.
I've decided to go with an 88lb Rocna instead. I have a 25 ton power boat
with a ton of windage. While sitting in a high wind
out in the 1000 islands one morning having a coffee on deck
, before my eyes my SS CQR
let go after holding for 2.5 days in various current
and winds! All I could think is "good thing I was awake"!!!
It was enough for me to rethink what I had as an anchor. Ill be honest...I fell in love with the huge size and look of the Boss and figured it would be the end of the story. I figured its design would have greatly changed from the Supreme. I found out that it retains the same technology of welding layers of metal together along the edges rather then one solid piece of metal. Call me nuts but that just doesn't sit well with me. The Rocna offers lifetime warranty on their anchor...even if just bent! They obviously have no worries since they use one piece solid metal. I've seen images
of a Supreme with a bent tip and galvanized portions rusting. Maybe you all can help me? You have images
of a Rocna bent and rusting?
Soooo....I've decided to up size a Rocna to the 88lb for my boat
in galvanized. I'm gonna keep my SS CQR
for show off on my rollers....but my primary anchor will be the Rocna. Its a simple shackle change. Thoughts?
I'll let you know how it goes! My outlook is positive.
