Since this is all about Rocna love, I'll add my experience. I've had my Rocna 25 (55#) for going on a decade now. It has held my hefty boat
(15 ton) through all manner of gales and storms, in a wide range of locations, from Lake Superior
, out the St. Lawrence, to Newfoundland
I used to say I have never dragged once the anchor
was properly set and dug in, but this record
was shattered last season. I experienced a slow drag while sitting through a near-gale. It was so slow that it took hours before I was certain.
Anyway, I am still very happy with the anchor. Way better than my previous bower setup with a CQR
and Danforth. But if/when I replace it, I'll likely look at one of the non-roll bar designs like Excel or Vulcan. They seem to be performing better in a lot of tests, and don't have some of the disadvantages that come with a roll bar (not that I've experienced much).
