Re: Spade Anchor
Sorry to hear that you are not happy with Rocna. I have changed from Original Buegel, (which is now BB on second Roller), to Rocna 40kg and using it the second season now.
Never dragged since then. I’m very happy with it and had several occasions recently with 180-degree shifts. I observed and dived the Anchor after a shift and discovered it may drag 0.5m or 1m (but not more) for resetting.
I had many troubles with the Buegel in the Agean Sea, especially when the bottom was partly covered by weed the holding was poor.

I am a bit surprised your Rocna is not working as you expect; ours was brilliant (on our previous boat) even with a 180 degree wind shift. Does yours have the roll over bar?
I had a CQR before on Eleuthera and this was pretty bad so having found a ULTRA dealer who gave me a big discount, I went for it. If you do ULTRA, the 35Kg has worked perfectly for us. The 45KG should also fit. Ensure you get the ULTRA swivel and chain claw. Both are great kit esp the swivel which always brings the anchor aboard right side up.
