For years I used a 33 lb Bruce on my 31 foot sailboat. Late last year we changed to a 32 foot 15000 pound trawler.
With my Bruce I had at times to set and re-set in order to get a good hold. As a result, I got into habit of powering back to set the anchor to have set quickly or not.
The trawler came with the knock off version of the Bruce. I dumped the knock off plow as I did not care for its construction. I then bought a Rocna 33.
Recently at an anchorage, I followed my old habit of power backing down. This time I did it with my new Rocna 33. The anchor set and held so quickly in a sandy clay bottom that it caught me off guard. Check out my (bow bitt) Samson Post.
Additionally, due to deteriorating weather/sea conditions we veered as much 150 degrees all through the night. The anchor never lost its set. I always match my anchor alarm distance with the length of my all chain rode and the alarm never went off.
I was not happy about my damaged Samson Post but I am genuinely impressed with your anchor.
