Mantus takes on Hurricane Sandy & Wins!

| 0

“The primary anchor, the Mantus, did very well.  It didn’t budge much at all, just enough for it to dig in so deep that the very top of the rollbar was 6 inches below the surface, which I believe was only about 2 feet of drag.  The in tandum anchor chain still had its 10+ feet of slack so that means the Mantus never dragged.  It did rotate when the winds rotated as it was pointing 120 degrees different direction from how it was set.  All in all, it passed a very tough test.  70 knots gusting to 80 knots and it didn’t drag but 2 feet….awesome!” – Franklin Gray reports from Bahamas
