Our trusty CQR copied was looking very rusty last year so we replaced it with a Rocna as we wanted something that bit quickly as we are in the Med and anchorages are crowded. As we do not have a windlass we we ended up with a 10kg as there was not a 12kg and the 15kg is too heavy for us to handle.
When we used it we found it bit as quickly as advertised. The only time we had a problem with it was when we dragged; however, it did reset, the bottom was not brilliant and as we were on chain and rode we may not have had enough scope (lulled in to a false sense of security as we had sat the weather out for 2 days before we dragged when it picked up a bit more overnight with a nasty chop).
We subsequently laid a all rode kedge as a backup and had a succession of windsurfers come off in front of us as their skegs caught the rode when the load came on :-|
Brad, does your 13lbs Mantus anchor fits in your front hatch when mounted?

I have a Mantus 13lb on my Tiki 21 and it sets instantly and holds like a rock every time
I have a far too heavy Mantus and a farr too heavy chain on my T21. it doesn't fit in my front hatch. However,when in the water, it is very secure and a pain to pull it back. Plus I dammage my front beam, even with all care I use. I want to change for something lighter, but not sur of what I need.
