Anchor Assembly Barely Required

Ron has been anxiously awaiting the arrival of our new Mantus anchor. As soon as it arrived Ron just had to put it together of course, but with 3 main pieces, six nuts/bolts and a couple bags of grease I think he was a bit bummed when it was all put together in less than ten minutes. Pretty easy.

Looks like caramel. Doesn't smell like it.
Greasing up the nuts/bolts
Slightly larger than our 35# CQR

If I don't sleep better with this hoss on bottm I probably never will
Most of the boats of similiar size in our boatyard have 35# CQR's. With our new Mantus I feel a bit conspicuous, but I'm sure I'll get over it. A 35# anchor is rated for a boat our size (36ft) but we chose to upgrade to 45# just to be safe so I could sleep better. Can't wait to try it out, just a few more weeks hopefully!


  1. Yaaay for peaceful sleeping at anchor!

  2. Size does matter!

  3. Anything to sleep better while anchored is a good investment in my book! Cheers - Ellen

    1. Seriously, I would have paid way more if this actually works. Fingers crossed :)
