Did they have a security guard at the Rocna booth? That is a $15,000 stainless steel Rocna.

Big expense for someone spending maybe 20 or so nights on the hook a year, in a good year, during summer, in the well-protected Gulf Islands anchorages.

Hey Bob

We were just at the Vancouver Boat Show. They had a couple of anchors on display. Salesman suggested these as anchors guaranteed to keep a 30 ft boat in place in the Gulf Islands off Vancouver Island.

For perspective I stand 5ft 10. And theshanks of these stood above my waist.
Pretty sure there would be a fitting issue and loading them on a boat would affect the balance. But on the plus side once deployed the boat would need to chafe through the line before it got away. Guaranteed not to drag.
Perfect storm anchor. Would fit on the bed in the V berth!
