Re: Anchors

No Bill,
Sorry, I bent my 33kg Wasi, see “How to straighten a bent boat anchor” on YouTube”, the Wasi bent when I lifted it after it dragged in weed during a 35 - 40 knot blow at night and then snagged in rocks which woke me up. I now have a 40kg Rocna and it really digs in. The 40kg Rocna is the largest I think you can fit on a 54. I was told that the stainless steel was not as strong as the galvanized.
I have the Wasi as a secondary on the Port roller.
