yea - my working anchor

As long as I can get it "rollered" I will be very happy and secure with this for hurricane
and high latitude cruising. Have new dual gypsey windless to easily deploy/retrieve both/either, etc
I also believe in the philosophy of a poster /cruiser from this site(if I remember correctly). They did much high latitude cruising in a monohull
and then many years later in a chris white cat. To paraphrase from memory "When people laugh at the 'large' size of your anchors when you arrive at a location, then you are getting close to the right size".
At the other end of the spectrum there was a French couple on a 44' cat here 2 weeks ago. The main/only anchor was a round 30lbs...
