The hoop in the first picture: I take it that is an A frame (or inverted U frame, I suppose)?

Nah, it's the top of the anchor. It's just very near the camera which makes it look big.

The Anchor is a SARCA, made/designed in Australia.

I swear by it as an all round good anchor. And I don't have to be to bothered about retrieving or repositioning the Anchor after a Dive for easy retrieval, unless I accidently hit the spot and it dropped right down into the holds of a wreck.

Retrieval is pretty well guaranteed, and it hooks into sand first time every time. It Rolls Upright, hooks in a bit of drag and then anchored. The Shank design allows you to motor over and reset the Anchor for either recovery or repositioning locking the Anchor down.

Love my SARCA. Not the prettiest anchor in town, but certainly the most practical. Sand Reef or Whatever.
