We’ve now made two trips from Seattle to Alaska with our Kadey Krogen 48NS. We absolutely love the Mantus. It has always impressed us at how quickly it takes hold. The only occasion where it may take a bit of time to set is when you can feel (and hear) it being dragged across a solid slab of rock. And even in those cases it seem to find a purchase. We’ve come to trust it to hold and that is in Alaska and Northern British Columbia where anchoring is often in deep locations with little room to swing resulting in relatively short scope conditions.
Thanks for reading through this. I’m looking forward to your ideas on what we might do for a bow anchor roller.
