I know, sorry I was being a little flippant. The mere mention of Rocna a few other boating forums causes virtual server meltdown.

My plan would only be to leave her in if it was dead calm otherwise I will pull her out every day.

Whenever I've left a boat at anchor overnight I've used both anchors off the bow . Make sure both are set , but with little or no 'pull' on the back up . One acts as back up incase the main one fails and gives the ones thats slipped a chance to set again naturally
Or you could do a Whisper and forget to tie the anchor on and throw it over!!

There is a cheaper alternative (knox anchors) who claim to be better than Rocna.

Those are made in UK.
