    I’ve been looking for an anchor to replace the standard 10 kg Lewmar Delta for some time. The Delta 16 fits the bow roller but the shank is too broad for the anchor locker lid.

    Following a tip from Echo, I tried the Rocna 15 kg, and it is a near perfect fit. It actually self-launches better than the Delta – the only issue is that care is needed on the drop so as not to catch the bow.

    I’m happier anchoring now! Photos attached show the Rocna in situ.

    Yes – I had a CQR anchor for many years on our old boat, and the setting power of the Delta that came with Freebird was a revelation. I felt that 10kg was too light for a boat with quite high topsides – I’d have been happy with the 16kg Delta, but as it didn’t fit chose the Rocna instead. Modern anchors have a lot of advantages.

    Yep know what you mean sometimes it took me several attempts to set the cqr and even then I was not 100% confident. The first time i lowered the spade and went astern to dig it in it bit the first time what a difference. I assume your Rocna will work in the same way far more better designs
