Rocna bow compatibility
The Rocna is a 40 kg. It approaches the guffaw point, so it is the right size. <G> I spoke to the mfr in Vancouver, he said it would fit, he was right; it fits like it was made for the boat. I have 400' of BBB chain, I rigged a swivel to the anchor with a shackle in the shank. We've been cruising since Aug, and have used the Rocna extensively, we anchor more than we are dockside. It has performed superbly. We anchored in Brigantine off Absecon Inlet, NJ in a 35 kt blow, we never moved. The Rocna website indicates that the anchor will set within 3 ft, and I would concur with that assessment with the exception of Chesapeake bay muck, where dropping the anchor, letting it "steep" then backing down slowly after 10 minutes or so seems to insure a better set.
I really love the Rocna, it's improved our rest on board, and had really improved our confidence in anchoring. I can recommend it without reservation!
