We were highly satisfied with the performance of the 20 kg / 44 Lbs Rocna Anchor on our Back Cove 37.

Fit launch and retrieval were flawless with no modifications to the stock windlass, platform, or roller. The boat LOD is 38 ft; displacement 21,000 lbs.

"Our Rocna anchor performed perfectly throughout this voyage, and more than proved its worth during a 60-knot storm in Dundas Harbour in August 2014." -Jimmy Cornell, well known offshore sailor and author, after recently completing a west to east transit of the Northwest Passage.

Rocna’s new Vulcan anchor is the latest addition to the modern scoop type anchors. Incorporating elements from several of its forebears, Peter Smith (originator or the Rocna) designed it specifically for larger powerboats, which have hitherto often been unable to accommodate a modern scoop type anchor. One factor that made the Rocna difficult to use on some boats was its roll bar. This was to facilitate the anchor orientating itself correctly when it landed on the bottom.

“Recently, we were hit by a pop up storm here in South Florida where winds hit 30-40kts for 30-40 minutes while we were rafted up with a 60' Morgan Schooner and two power boats. Wind shifted and our anchor was the only one holding all of us. Picture was taken by a friend on a 60+ M/V that actually broke loose during the same storm. Many others had dragging anchors too. I have to say I am real happy with the holding of our Rocna.”

On Saturday I was at your booth at the Boat Show to compliment the performance of your still Rocna. With my husband we sailed in the Mediterranean in the summer and we are really very happy with this anchor: since we adopted a few years ago, we no longer had to redo a berth!
