Re: Anchors

Hi Nick. I had the same anchoring set up on my Amel 54 #14. It was no contest. The Wasi Bugel was better in sand, mud, weeds and rocks. Set it correctly and sleep with both eyes closed. The Delta is not bad, just not as good as the Wasi. I think the swivel enhances the Wasi's utility. However, opinions on anchors are as diverse as those on sports cars, hunting dogs, girlfriends and...

I have three anchors on Amelia;
1. The original 33kg WASI Bugel supplied by Amel, currently my main anchor.
2. A 40kg Delta set up on the port windlass; so my second anchor.
3. A large aluminium Fortress that disassembles located in the Lazarette locker as my third.

The question is; should I use the Delta 40kg as my primary rather than the WASI? They would sit better on the bow if the WASI was to port and the Delta to starboard.
Put another way. So between a 33kg WASI and a 40Kg Delta which will hold better?
