Re: Maramu anchor and chain suggestions

Thanks a lot for your help. The 33kg Rocna does look like it is a great fit for the stock Amel anchor handling gear as you indicated and also shown in your photo. The Rocna looks like a really strong anchor, especially the shank. How do you find the holding of this anchor for your Maramu?
Has anyone used the Mantus 39kg or 48kg on their Maramu? The Mantus appears to fit the SM2000 pretty well but I don’t know how much of a difference there between the Amel anchor handlers of these two models. The reviews of this anchor look very positive so any comments about the Mantus positive or negative would be appreciated.
It is really helpful to know about the anchor locker limits for rode length in order to prevent jamming. I think that will limit the chain to no more than the 80m of chain that you suggested if I go with the 10mm size. I am guessing that the 100m of the 8mm chain would probably fit without jamming? I like the larger links of the 10mm since this allows splicing up to 7/8” nylon direct to the chain.
I am guessing that you are saying that 100m of the stainless 10mm should work without jamming because it has less of a tendency to pile up due to the smoother links. I have not used a stainless anchor chain before but having seen and experienced so many corrosion related failures in stainless over the years that without learning more about the stainless option I would tend to be more comfortable with the galvanized steel.
Thanks again for the help!
