Nice one - also used by the RNLI. My copy is exactly the same shape/weight etc but doesn't look quite so pretty!!!

The 7.5kg is quite a lot bigger and may cause some storage problems, but if needs must..........
The Rib is a 8m Scorpion
Thanks

7.5kg Bruce fits fine under the deck of my Scorpion.

Fits fine in my deck locker as well but I have another smaller hole that lets you get down to the V of the hull itself. With a Delta I can put the plough down into the hole so it won't move around.

The Bruce is a great all round anchor but the Delta is supposed to have a much higher holding power
