Rocna Anchors get a grip on Ireland

29th November -0001
The manufacturers of Rocna Anchors claim they set in all ocean floors without any special tricks and are easy to use, giving maximum versatility. The anchors have self-launch capability, and its design ensures that it lands on the ideal angle for penetration, giving instant set. The chisel tip and weight distribution combine to ensure a virtual instant set in most sea bed conditions, including thick weed and kelp.
Independent testing (Sail & Yachting Monthly) voted Rocna number one for holding power. In addition, the high hold results in less dragging and therefore less seabed damage.

With an unconditional guarantee, Rocna are now available in Ireland from Boyd Boats, tel: 01 230 1230 or email [email protected] Team
