I received it last week and with snow on the ground it went as far as the work table. I like it, and the size is just perfect for the inflatable an AB 9.5 AL. I love the way it comes apart and that helped me deal with the price. When I put the anchor together I did not receive a firm click to make me feel comfortable that the anchor was put together properly and the small hole that the pin fills up did not look like it was engaging properly. After pushing the pin in, I confirmed it was indeed seated properly. Never the less the silicone spray came out just incase, to help it assemble properly. Until I use it this summer, I cannot give it a rating nor comment on the reliability of the pin engaging. If it works half as good as the advertisement, I will be happy. I was using one of those foldable grappels and I never felt comfortable with the inflatable being anchored out of sight. A number of times the boat dragged while anchored. If I dragged my AB up on the beach, and the tide went out, my wife had trouble helping drag the boat back in. If the tide came in, the boat could drift off. Hence my anchor purchase. This summer I will have plenty of time to test the anchor out and would be happy to let you know my results.

Having purchased other Mantus products I thought I would try to upgrade my dinghy with a new anchor so I recently purchased a new SS dinghy anchor package to go with a new Highfield AL10.5 rib. The anchor was as advertised and arrived on time. The SS was very nice. So nice and my wife even liked it! The parts fit nicely the first time I put it together. I tried it out a few days ago in the muddy bottom of Lake Michigan, and it held as well as I thought it would. I look forward to deploying it in a nice Caribbean bay in the near future.

I cruise on a Willard 40 Flybridge Sedan trawler andI fell in love with the Mantus Dinghy Anchor after seeing the Mantus videos of it in action.
The stainless steel is beautiful, though unnecessary, but I like the fact that the shank can be separated from the anchor itself, unlike the galvanized version. I’m really looking forward to using it on my new Highfield ten-foot dinghy.

The dinghy anchor is fantastic.
We love the new roll bar and how compact it breaks down.
