I will be upgrading the anchor to, probably, a rocna 20 or 25Kg replacing the rather marginal standard equipment. I have not measured up a rocna to see any issues and I am not that worried about using the rocna. Any of the new generation anchors seem to have good results these days. One ove the main factors in the choice will be how they will fit and what modifications will be needed.
What anchors have others upgraded to and what modifications, if any, were needed?

I have a rocna which needed no mods apart from a wooden wedge to lock it more securely when at sea. I was told that modifications were required to fit a Manson. That helped me make my decision

I have a Rocna 20kg on our 400. Works a treat, sets well , and fits securely. We use a Snubber line to attach to the Anchor chain, below the roller, this is led back to a deck cleat on the bow , this takes the load off the windlass when setting the anchor, or if their is a bit of a chop ..

We have a 20Kg Rocna - sets well. Very happy with the switch from the Delta.

Had a snubber that used to run from the cleats over the roller. Got caught in a blow in the Tuamotu's and the Anchor bent, now use a snubber from cleats  and under roller.

Also had the stainless steel protector made up

Thank you all. Looks like a 20kg rocna fits well.
Looking at the rocna sizing guide a 40ish foot Hanse would be at the top of the range for a 20kg or the bottom of the range for a 25Kg. Did anyone try a 25 or would that be a bit over the top?
Just thinking about the high windage we would have in a blow?

When you got caught in that blow that bent the anchor, did it bend the fairlead as well as the boat yawed on anchor in the wind?
Ive always questioned their strength.We are heading off shore but I think I would be reluctant to deploy a sea anchor off one. Thanks.

Hi

Attached a photo of the repaired anchor roller. Have since bought a new one.

The anchor had got caught in coral in the Tuamoto's and the wind had generated a bit of chop. The snubber was on the cleats and ran over the roller. After the roller bend the snubber snapped.

The side fairleads are not very tough - we have broken the two aft ones. 

A sea anchor is a scary thing - we have a drouge that thankfully we have never had to use.

Cheers Neil

Further to the above am on the way to the Aegean and on arrival planned to upgrade the 16kg Delta to a 25kg Vulcan, plus 60-70M of chain, In order to sleep easier! Looking at the Rocnor sizing chart it appears that 25kg would be the optimal weight as last week the boat weighed 11MT on the travel lift and we have yet to load out !. However downloaded the Vulcan template and it does not quite fit on the bow roller. Has anyone fitted a 25kg Spade, Ultra or Rocnor ? If so did you modify the bow roller etc.
Will the current windlass Fisherman Pro 1000 handle the weight of chain, 70 metres of 8mm  plus 25kg anchor?
 
Thanks
Rod
