Yes, Itrimmed the trunk to 10cm, it fits perfectly thru the bow passage, no strenght reduction at all: always much bigger than the chain.
Unfortunately due to a defective connection to the chain (girella)n during a night stormy passage, I lost it between Sardinia and Tunisia: last summer I bought a Fortress 37, as a second anchor, but soon or later I'll buy Rocna 25 again, trimming it to 10cm, because I still think it is VERY safe.

Did you trim the Rocna 25 to work? Does it reduce the strength? How do you like the Rocna?

Hi to all Santorin owners,
since I never had much confidence on the ordinary CQR anchorinherited with the Santorin, I purchased last year (#86 ex Delos, now Sisila), I purchsed a Rocna 25, maybe too heavy, anyhow much heavier than the CQR.
The problem is that the trunk is too high to pass thru the bow (excuse my approximate English). SM#5 Spice said tht the trim of the trunk mst be to 12cm: according to my measurements, the R25 must be trimmd to 10cm, accordinf to the attached photo.
