Is the 15kg size sufficient for the 385, as itís at the max for the size of boat. Just wondered if you have ever wished youíd gone for a 20kg?

We have had no problem using the 35 pound Mantus, although I have not tried it in anything approaching storm conditions. The next size up was 45 pounds and I did not think it would fit on the bow roller without modifications. I carry an extra Fortress anchor on board, and I think if I ever needed more holding power I would deploy the second anchor also.

Hi,, would it be possible to see a picture of the anchor on the bow roller, and what small mod did you carry out to retain the anchor? I am looking at the Rocna 20Kg but donít want to have to perform any drastic changes.
Thanks.

Here are a few pictures. The only modification I had to do was rasp about 1mm off the small pin that is on the rod that goes through the anchor. There is still plenty of the pin left to keep the rod from sliding out. The pictures of the Mantus swivel are on the old anchor, but it fits the same and allows the anchor locker hatch to close with about 1mm to spare. As much as the next size anchor would be nice, this one fits well and has performed well. And I like that their stainless steel anchor has a somewhat dull finish that does not show dirt or wear.

Thanks for this. I have just been sold a 20kg by Jimmy Green Marine in UK, they said it was their best seller and strongly recommend. They have also said they will exchange for the Mantus if it does not fit as I wish, so I have a few months to play around until Iím likely to drop it in the water. I know itís sales pitch, but as far as I can see the rollbar type all pretty much work the same, pay your money take your choice. Iíll post a picture once Iíve finished faffing. Thanks again. Adrian.
